The feature is pretty handy if you need to send someone a video but don’t want to send the background audio. Previously you would have to resort to third-party software to do the same and then send the video. This feature is obviously very handy to a specific set of people, but it’s nice that the feature has made an appearance. There is no information as to when the feature will be available in the final version of WhatsApp.
