WhatsApp’s new killer upgrade will make the app less annoying

WhatsApp has been rolling out a lot of great features recently, but it looks like it’s not going to be slowing down anytime soon. The latest big feature coming to the messaging platform is going to make it less annoying to receive videos.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is set to let people mute videos when they share them with friends, meaning the recipient can watch whatever clip you’ve sent them without disturbing anyone in the immediate area.

Muting a video is easy. All you need to do is start sharing a video with a contact as normal, and once you’re on the edit page hit the speaker button. It’s towards the top of the page, underneath all the usual editing options. Then you send the video.

That will strip the video of its audio when it’s sent, so the person receiving it will be able to watch what’s going on without forcing everyone around them to listen in as well. This is assuming they don’t have any headphones with them.
