WhatsApp Mute Audio Feature for Android users on the latest version

A great new feature for Android users, the WhatsApp app will show you the mute button when you preview a video before sending/forwarding it to contacts members.

This is the screen where WhatsApp allows you some editing tools, and the sound mute button is one of them.

Enabling the setting will remove the video of its audio, which determines the video’s recipients will hear nothing in the video.

This mute feature is available only for Android users right now, so it is unclear when it will get on iOS.

On Twitter, WhatsApp stated the new mute audio feature speaking, “for your eyes, not for your ears.”

The feature is being rolled out to the stable WhatsApp build in a classified manner, which is why some users may view it before the rest.

For that, you need to ensure you are utilizing the latest WhatsApp version on your phone.

If not, you can go to the Google Play Store app on your phone and update WhatsApp, or you can download the APK file of the latest version and sideload it on your phone.

The latter looks a little riskier, so it is prudent to visit official websites for APK files.

To use the feature, you require to contact you to send the video to or go to the Status screen and tap on Add to my Status.

Now, you can both tap the Camera icon or go to the gallery to pick the video. When you choose the video, WhatsApp presents a preview of the video along with editing tools.

You can trim the video, add emojis, stickers, and texts, and now mute the audio.

The mute audio icon is located below the progress bar for the video. Just tap to mute the audio and continue to either send the video to a friend/family person or a group or only upload it as your WhatsApp Status.

In one of many methods, WhatsApp is over trying to provide users more options to customize the content they want to experience.

This is possibly why most users do not want to leave WhatsApp despite the controversial privacy policy that will get into effect this May.

WhatsApp stated that it would prevent users from accessing its services if they do not conform to the privacy policy, which, in a nutshell, concentrates on the sharing of sensitive data such as contact information and device details, along with what content information the user posts as Status with the parent company Facebook.

The initial attempt to obtain users’ accept the privacy policy led to a large exodus where users found Signal and Telegram more transparent and safe to use than WhatsApp.
