Next to calls and simple text messages, you can send images and various other files using the app. As of July 2017, the app has been updated to support almost any file format to share with friends and family.

Optional Settings For Your Video

It takes only three simple steps to get your video ready to send it via WhatsApp. And yet, there is more you can do in case you need to. The optional settings that you have at your disposal are explained below.



Presets are a simple and easy way to quickly optimize your video with only one selection. The presets will, mainly, affect the screen size of your video. Check out the following list:

File Format Screen Resolution
MP4 1280×720


Disable Audio Track

If this option is unchecked, the audio track of the video remains untouched. However, by checking the box, you can remove the audio from it.

This comes in handy if the background sounds or conversations in the video would only distract from the visual content. Plus, that way your friends can open a video without fearing it blaring out sound when being in public (and their phone is not on mute).


Cut Video

Your video is too long or contains content you do not want to share? It takes too long until the real action started? Easy, just cut it. That way, you can make long videos shorter and concentrate on the important parts.

It’s easy, just state the starting and ending point in the following format: HH:MM:SS
