How to mute a Whatsapp video before sending it? The beta version of WhatsApp for Android has added a small but useful improvement: Being able to mute a video before sending it to someone via WhatsApp. We learned that WhatsApp was working on this feature back in November, and now it’s finally going live for users.
How to mute a Whatsapp video before sending it?
When recording a video, it’s normal to include audio, but it’s not always important. What’s more, sometimes you’ll want to mute the video if you hear conversations in the background or anything else distracting from the video itself. Now you have an option to mute directly from the WhatsApp video editor, without using any additional apps.
Mute before sending
WhatsApp includes a small video editor with which you can add stickers, text, doodles, trim the length of a video and even turn it into an animated GIF. This editor now adds, first in WhatsApp Beta, the mute button.
When you press it, WhatsApp will send a copy of the video from your gallery that does not include the sound, just like that. The way to send a muted video is the same for sending any type of video. The difference is that, after choosing the video you are going to send, you will have to press on the speaker icon, just below the timeline preview.
Pressing the icon toggles between the crossed-out and unticked speaker icon. Otherwise, it works, as usual, so you can add a comment before attaching it to a chat or group.
Videos that have been muted are displayed in chats without any distinction, and no one will be able to tell if you removed the sound or it came already like that. As we said, WhatsApp is already activating this feature for WhatsApp Beta users on Android, although it is expected to reach everyone soon, in the stable version.
