We have good news for those users who like to share high-quality photos and videos in their status updates on WhatsApp. Although the feature is still not available for public testing, its presence in some closed betas and part of the code suggests that this functionality could be coming soon.
The beta version of WhatsApp for iOS v188.8.131.52 reveals that a future update will allow users to share music and audio during video calls. Although it is not yet available for beta testers, a screenshot shared by WABetaInfo offers a preview of the upcoming feature.WhatsApp is working on a feature to share musical audio during a video call and will be available in a future update.[/caption>
Improving the current system for sharing high-quality content
The instant messaging application already allows users to send high-definition photos and videos to other users and groups. According to a screenshot provided by the website, a new “HD” button will be added to the editor when creating a WhatsApp status, making it easier to upload media in HD quality.
WhatsApp statuses operate similarly to Instagram stories, offering the ability to share text, photos, videos, and GIFs that remain visible for 24 hours. Status updates are located in the “Updates” tab, but it is necessary for both parties to be on each other’s contact list to send and receive these updates.WhatsApp is working on a feature to send high-quality photos and videos to the status
Earlier this year, WhatsApp introduced the screen sharing feature for video calls on platforms like Android, iOS, and Windows. However, the feature does not allow sharing audio from content such as YouTube, Netflix, or games. The new feature in development will bring WhatsApp closer to the experience provided by FaceTime, allowing users to watch movies or listen to music together during video calls through SharePlay.
