On Android, the app version is claimed to be via the Google Play Beta program. Whereas on iOS, the feature is present in WhatsApp for iOS version, which can be signed up for through the TestFlight Program.

WhatsApp introduced Instant Video Notes in 2023, enabling users to record and send 60-second video messages to others directly in chat. The platform recently started testing a new shortcut button to quickly reply to video notes. With the dedicated video notes option in the camera tab, it is speculated to make the process of sharing video notes more seamless.

Gadgets 360 staff members were unable to verify the availability of this feature on WhatsApp beta for Android. This change is said to bring an alternative way to send video notes, with the other one being long pressing on the camera icon in a specific chat.
