Instant messaging app is reportedly working on a new feature that would let users mute their videos before posting those to their friends and family members or putting them up as status.

As spotted by WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned company is now developing a mute video feature and it has appeared on a beta update.

In the screenshot shared by the features tracker, one can see the option of muting the video along with the trimming option.

"After enabling Advanced Wallpaper features and Disappearing messages, is working on new features now. The next feature, available in a future update, will allow muting videos before sending to contact or your status updates," a report by WABetaInfo read.

WhatsApp has also started rolling out advanced wallpaper features to more users.

This feature lets users set a different wallpaper for each chat. You can choose to set one wallpaper for all chats on WhatsApp, or manually select a different one for each chat.

Recently, WhatsApp introduced the much-awaited 'Disappearing Messages' feature.

As the name suggests, the feature allows user to send messages that will appear for a limited period of time.
