WhatsApp to introduce extended video status duration

As per an online report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp will start permitting users to share videos worth a minute in status updates. As of now, Android beta testers can utilise this feature in the application’s iteration labelled

From what it’s understood, this development is presently available for only a chosen set of beta testers, who can make use of the feature by sharing videos in their status updates which exceed the 30-second mark.
The report has highlighted the importance for users to be aware of the need to update WhatsApp, for watching extended videos shared via status updates.
“Over time, users have consistently requested the ability to share longer videos as their status updates. With the previous 30-second limit, users often found themselves constrained when trying to convey a comprehensive story or share longer snippets of their lives.
Now, with the one-minute duration, users have the freedom to share more extensive video content without the need for cumbersome edits or compromises on the message they want to convey,” the report quoted.
It’s believed that the functionality will be made available to even more people over the coming weeks.
