iPhone


If you own an iPhone and want to find out how to forward a video on WhatsApp, the first step you need to take is to access the conversation in which the video you intend to act on is present. To do this, press the WhatsApp app icon on the home screen, tap on the tab Chat attached to the screen that is shown to you, presses on the title (it can be the name of the contact with whom you are having a conversation or the name of the group) of the conversation of your interest and tries to identify the video sent or received.


At this point, press and continue to hold down on the movie until the app context menu appears and then tap on Submit and selects the arrow located in the lower left part. You can also forward multiple videos at a time by placing a check mark in the appropriate selection box next to each chat message.

Then, tap the button in the shape of arrow located at the bottom left and wait for a new application screen to be shown to you through which you can choose the contacts to forward the video to. Then select a contact from those in the section Recent chats, tap on the item Submit present in the menu that is shown to you and waits for the video to be forwarded (it may take more or less time depending on the duration of the movie).

If the contact you wish to forward a video to on WhatsApp is not in the recent list or if you prefer to send the video to a group, you can use the appropriate buttons located at the bottom of the screen that is shown to you to select a group (this is the button depicting more men), a broadcast list (this is the button depicting un megaphone) or a contact from the complete list of contacts (this is the button depicting a single little man).


WhatsApp also allows you to share YouTube videos and those opened through other apps within chats. In this case, however, keep in mind that the videos are not played directly in the app but are displayed in the form of links that, if selected, allow you to watch the video in the reference application.

To forward a video on WhatsApp using YouTube or any other application on your iPhone and other than the famous instant messaging app, all you have to do is select the movie you intend to act on, press and hold. on the text until the context menu appears, choose the item Submit, tap the button depicting un rectangle with an arrow which is located in the lower right part of the screen and choose one of the apps or proposed options attached to the displayed menu.


Finally, I remind you that you can also share the videos you have saved on the phone memory on WhatsApp: those you recorded with the smartphone camera but also those you downloaded from the Internet.

To do this on the iPhone you need to press the icon of arrow located at the bottom left of the chat screen, select the item Photo / Video Library from the menu that appears, select the movie and press on the item Send. Easier than that?
