According to the report of WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp 126.96.36.199 beta for Android has shown the ability to mute videos, allowing you to mute videos before sharing or creating status from a contact.
According to the screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, a speaker icon will be given for the mute which will be located near the duration and file size details of the video being shared. By clicking on this icon, you can mute the video before sending it to WhatsApp.
It is being said that work is going on on this new feature, currently this feature is present in Beta Testing Phase. However, in the coming time it will be made live for updates for Android WhatsApp users.
In addition to the mute video option, the WABetaInfo report also reported that WhatsApp is working on the ‘Read Later’ feature, which will replace the existing Archive Chats feature. It is being said that this new feature is part of the WhatsApp 188.8.131.52 beat for the iPhone.
It can be seen in some screenshots shared by WABetaInfo that the ‘Read Later’ feature will allow users to access certain chats, whose notifications they do not want to receive. Users will also be given the Edit button, under which they can choose the chats they want to unarchive immediately. The Edit Archive Settings option will also be available by tapping on the edit button, with the help of which they can make changes in archive chats.
Speculations are being made about the new ‘Read Later’ feature that work is going on on this along with the new ‘Vacation Mode’, which has been in the works for a long time but it remains public. At the same time, like the video mute feature, the read letter feature is also currently under development stage, which can be made available with future updates.
