    Hello,

    So this question is addressed to the WhatsApp developers.

    First of all, I'm really impressed by the software on BB.

    But its still lacking when compared to the Android version.

    One feature I miss is when I record a video with my camera and hit send, it tells me the video is too huge and exceeds the WhatsApp limit. This is because WhatsApp on BB tries to send it in its full quality.

    On android, I record the video and when I try to send, WhatsApp shrinks the video for me and sends it.

    Will this feature be added to the BB version?

    Thanks.

    When BlackBerry adds "Media Editing" functionality to their API, we will investigate adding this. It is on their roadmap, but it is not currently available. Until then, all the available methods of reencoding video to a smaller size are way too slow to make for a quality user experience.

    Awesome.

    Thank you for that explanation.

    I appreciate the constant support you guys do for BB10 while many have abandoned.

    Good luck!

    Just a follow up question.

    Do you know if 10.3 has the Editing Media functionality?

    Last that I've checked, it's still coming soon on the api road map
