WhatsApp video sending issue affects Samsung Galaxy S series and other Android devices

Samsung Galaxy S24 June 2024 update

A recent update to WhatsApp for Android users has brought an issue that is preventing users from sending videos. Spotted after updating to version v2.24.9.34, the issue shows in an error message – “Can’t send this video. Choose a different video and try again.”

This issue seems to be specific to videos that are recorded or saved directly on Android devices. Whereas, videos captured by iPhones, especially in MOV format, are not being affected and can be shared without any issues. This bug is also affecting some videos downloaded from Instagram to the device’s storage.

The video-sending issue on WhatsApp is not affecting every Android user, but it has been verified on some devices, notably the Galaxy S series. Several users reported their concerns on social media platforms like Reddit, Twitter, and more to highlight the inconvenience caused by this unexpected bug.

For those who want an immediate fix to this issue, upgrading to older WhatsApp version 2.24.8.85 is a temporary solution. As of now, WhatsApp has not issued an official statement about the issue. It’s recommended to wait for a permanent solution before proceeding with any app upgrades.

WhatsApp to extend QR-based chat transfer feature for old Android, iOS phones

WhatsApp Chat History transfer feature

WhatsApp is simplifying the process of transferring chat history from one phone to another through a new feature. The fresh beta (2.24.13.6) update of WhatsApp introduces a new way for a seamless transfer of conversations from an old phone to a new one, without the need for Google Drive backups.

With Beta 2.23.9.19, WhatsApp brought a QR code-based system that allows users to move their chat history directly between Android devices. The beta new update suggests the possibility of extending this feature to allow cross-platform chat history transfers, potentially including iOS devices.

Presently, WhatsApp supports chat history transfers between iOS and Android, but it’s limited to newer Android versions and requires a physical cable. The new update aims to eliminate these restrictions to offer a universal solution for all users. This new feature would be a significant improvement over the current chat transferring method.

The details of how this new universal transfer feature will work are not yet clear, as it is still under development. Through this, WhatsApp aims to provide a more user-friendly and universally applicable migration solution.
