WhatsApp has finally rolled out the mute-video feature that lets users mute the audio of videos while sharing them with others. The feature is currently rolling out to Android users and its availability for the iOS client remains unclear. The feature has been in the works for quite some time, and beta users received its access last month. Android WhatsApp users must ensure that they are using the latest version of the app to use the mute-video feature. Users can update the manually via Google Play Store.
To mute the audio of the video before sharing, users will need to tap on the speaker button below the seeker tool that allows trimming the length of a clip. The feature is similar to the mute audio option on the Instagram app that has been existing for quite some time. The latest WhatsApp feature is also rolling out to Android smartphone users in India. Though the update is not substantial, it is still useful as users can mute sensitive audio on videos that they want to share with others.
