As the coronavirus lockdown lets more individuals to social networking, it shows up more advances are being taken to deal with the system blockage brought by the rise in the number of users. After YouTube, Netflix, and numerous others imposed limitations, for example, bringing down the bitrate and defaulting to a lower resolution, WhatsApp has planned something similar for the ‘Status’ on its platform.
WhatsApp no longer allows the users to post videos longer than 15 seconds as their status on the platform in India. The change was first spotted by WABetaInfo. It is true that users will never be able to share videos of more than 15 seconds on their Status. Now, when you try to share a video longer than 15 seconds long, the application shows a note that says “Videos sent to My Status will be trimmed to the first 15 seconds”.
However, the message is somewhat befuddling, just because the videos are not really cut to the initial 15 seconds. Rather, you can determine any 15-second part of a video that can go on your status. You should simply slide the rectangular box over the video to choose which 15-second bit of a video you need to share. When you’ve done that, the 15-second clip will be shared on your WhatsApp status. However, the step has been only in India starting now.
