WhatsApp status will not upload videos longer than 15 seconds, find out the reason


People are locked in their homes because of coronavirus lockdown. The only platform they need to be connected to the outside world is the online platform. Due to the increase in the number of users, various steps are being taken to control the growing pressure on the network. YouTube, Netflix and other sites have taken several steps. These include decisions like lower bitrate and default reduced resolution. WhatsApp has also taken similar steps regarding its ‘status’ category. Instant messaging app WhatsApp does not allow users to share videos for more than 15 seconds in India.

WABetaInfo Gave the first information about this change. We’ve tested the latest beta (v2.20.107) and stable builds (v2.20.89) on WhatsApp on Android, and now we can independently confirm that users can’t share videos for more than 15 seconds on their WhatsApp status. Now if you try to share a video in your status for more than 15 seconds, you will see in the app that “the video sent for my status will be cropped in the first 15 seconds”

However, this message is somewhat misleading. Since the video is not truncated in the first 15 seconds, you can choose the second part of this video and post it in my status All you have to do is select a 15 second part of the frame of the whole video, then upload it. At the moment, this change will only happen in India.

According to the report, the 15-second video of this status was taken to reduce traffic on the server infrastructure. However, there was no official statement from WhatsApp about the change. We have contacted WhatsApp about this. We will update you as soon as we receive the answer. However, many people are not satisfied with the 15 second status video change. The WhatsApp status you set makes your contacts visible only for 24 hours. It is then automatically deleted. But it will be interesting to see if WhatsApp’s move reduces the load on the server infrastructure.
