Indian users will no longer be able to post long videos as WhatsApp status and we are not saying this, WhatsApp is. As per a new report in WABetainfo, a time limit has been set for videos That are posted as WhatsApp statuses.
The report further states that it is applicable only for Indian users and they won’t be able to share videos that are longer than 16 seconds.
However, it was being reported that some Indians could still post videos longer than 16 seconds. The new feature will be rolled out for more Indians soon. Although this news might upset a lot of WhatsApp users who loved posted long trails of videos as their statuses,
The change is made only for Asian region which means that if you are using WhatsApp from any other country, you can still upload a video longer than 15 seconds to your WhatsApp Status. According to WABetaInfo, the said change is not a permanent functionality. WhatsApp might set the duration limit back to 30 seconds after India eases the coronavirus countrywide lockdowns. So assured that it is a temporary decision and the full functionality will be restored in the future.
Recently, many of the streaming services in India along with Facebook reduced the video quality from HD to SD when users are streaming the content on cellular data.
