A WhatsApp bug prevents Android users from sending videos

There is a bug in the latest version of WhatsApp that prevents users from sending video messages on WhatsApp. Reddit user u/EnderVamp filed a complaint on the WhatsApp subreddit about WhatsApp's inability to send video messages on Android. Whenever you try to send a video to someone on WhatsApp, you'll see a pop-up message that says, 'Can't send this video. Please choose another video and try again.'

The bug appears to be affecting Android users in the WhatsApp beta

9To5Google reproduced the bug and experienced the same annoying messages as the Reddit user. This bug appears to only affect video files and does not affect other file formats. According to their findingsTrying to send a video that you recorded or downloaded locally on your Android device will trigger the bug. MOV video files recorded on iOS devices can be forwarded without triggering the bug.

Although the Reddit user who reported the bug was on an Android device, it is unclear whether this affects all Android devices or just some brands, and how widespread the bug is. Bugs in mobile apps can occur for many reasons, such as programming errors, incompatible operating systems, or other factors. In this case, the Reddit user was using a beta version of WhatsApp, so this could be a contributing factor.

There is a temporary solution

For users experiencing this bug, a workaround is to downgrade your WhatsApp to the version 2.23.8.85. Since Google Playstore does not allow you to go back to a previous version of an application, you will have to search for the specific version from external sources such as APK Mirror.

If you'd rather not downgrade, you'll have to wait until WhatsApp releases a fix. WhatsApp recently underwent the largest user interface (UI) overhaul on Android. The technical team is known for quickly addressing and resolving bugs and security issues.
