STEP 2. After the app has been updated, you can launch it from your phone.
STEP3: Mute Video is now available for both individual chats and status mode.
STEP4: Record a video on Status or chat tile to make the most of the new muted video feature.
Step 5: After you’re done recording, you’ll see a volume icon in the upper left corner. Tap on this to muffle video. Then, send the outgoing soundless video to your recipient.
This feature is for users who wish to share videos with no audio background.
