The feature is likely to be rolled out for all users as soon as all bugs and issues are resolved. WhatsApp beta version 22.214.171.124 users will receive a video mute feature that will allow them to remove the audio from a video clip before sharing.
The mute option will be available on your video editing screen along with text and emoji editing features. The option will appear as a volume icon that users will need to press to mute the sound while pressing it again will turn the volume back up. Other options such as Sketch, Text and Smiley functionality will be the same. At this time, it is unclear when this feature would be available to users in a stable release.
The company is also working on a multi-device support feature that should arrive in stable release soon. The report suggests that users of the beta version of the previous version could benefit from this feature.
WhatsApp has recently made many improvements to the web / desktop versions, including the biometric authentication feature, as well as support for audio / video calls.
