Sending WhatsApp video without sound on Android: Here’s how
If you want to determine for yourself whether the original sound of the video clip is for the recipient of the message, you can do so in the editing function of the app. Text and stickers can be inserted here before the video is sent, the video can be cropped and, if necessary, muted for a new button. The duration and file size of the video are specified under the strip in which the editor edits individual frames of the clip. To the left of these two pieces of information is now the symbol of a loudspeaker: sound can be switched here or from it. If the loudspeaker is crossed, the video will be played back without sound after the editing is complete.

New WhatsApp function: this is how forwarded video can be muted
The matting only works for videos that you upload to the Messenger service, not for forwarded messages. So if you want to send to a video that you have received from a colleague or friend, for example, without sound, you have to take a little detour. Instead of forwarding the message as before, the video clip must again be uploaded directly from the cell phone’s own memory to a chat with the person who is to receive the video without sound. WhatsApp usually automatically saves the videos watched in your phone’s memory, so it is easy to find videos here. After uploading, the process is the same for a video that you recorded yourself: open the clip in the editor, mute to the bottom left, save the changes and send.
