Say goodbye to the most hated feature of WhatsApp in just a few simple steps

With the multiple updates to instant messaging applications and the competition that exists between them today, as well as the alternatives that have emerged such as Telegram; WhatsApp, the leading app in this field, has also had to evolve.

This is how the option to send instant video messages to the application came last July, and although many users use it and benefit from it, many others were dissatisfied with this new option.

This complaint stems from the fact that many users accidentally record a video when trying to send a voice message. This happens when pressing the audio feedback button activates the video recording button, and if you leave it pressed when you want to send audio, you’ll end up creating an uncomfortable video.

If you, like many other users, are bothered by this error, below we will tell you how you can deactivate instant video messages on WhatsApp.

How to deactivate video messages in your WhatsApp account?

When you do this, only video messages will be deactivated in your account, so you will not be able to record video messages, but you will continue to receive videos sent to you by your contacts.

Once that is clear, to deactivate instant video messages in your WhatsApp account, you must follow these steps:

  • Open the WhatsApp application on your smartphone
  • Tap the button with the three vertical dots located in the upper right corner
  • Click on the Settings option, and once in it, access the Chats section
  • Finally, deactivate the button to the right of the instant video messages option

Once you complete these steps, instant video messages will be disabled in your WhatsApp account and if you ever want to send a video, you will have to activate it again.

If the option to deactivate video messages is not yet visible in your WhatsApp account settings, you will have to wait for it to become available in a future update.
