How To Mute a Video on Whatsapp Before Sharing It

There’s no shortage of apps that let you share videos with others without audio. But if you’re chatting with someone on WhatsApp and come to realize that you need to share a video with audio muted, then it can be tedious to find a video editor to mute the sound and then send it on WhatsApp, more so switching back and forth between apps for editing and all. 

Fortunately, WhatsApp lets you mute a video before sharing it without having to resort to a gallery app to edit out the video sound.   

How to Mute video before sharing on WhatsApp

  1. Open a WhatsApp chat, tap on attach files (clip icon) in the message field, and select a video from your gallery.
  2. Or capture a video from within WhatsApp itself by tapping on the camera icon.
  3. Once selected, you will see a volume icon near the top left corner. Tap on it to mute the video and, finally, share your video.

And that’s about it. Muting a video on WhatsApp is a breeze and makes sharing soundless videos a seamless affair.
