Camera mode resembles functionality available on Instagram
Currently, to record videos on WhatsApp you have to press the screen and wait for the button to turn red. With the camera mode, a new update in the WhatsApp testing phase, it will be possible to record videos of up to 30 seconds without your finger pressing the screen during all this time.
Now, the camera mode will adopt functionality already present in Instagram, known as hands-free, in which you just need to click once on the screen and the cell phone keeps the recording alone.
Another functionality in the testing phase, which will help in recording videos on the platform, is the possibility of switching between the front and rear cameras without pausing or ending the video, which is the current operating mode.
The new update of WhatsApp’s “Camera Mode”, an application from the Meta group, is in the development phase. Therefore, the test phase is only available for the beta version of WhatsApp, 188.8.131.52, only on Android operating system devices.
For now, just update the app on the Google Play Store and have access to the new feature, which can be used to record statuses or in private conversations.
