Is it possible to forward WhatsApp videos without downloading? Yes, it’s possible. Before that let’s see why you need to know this WhatsApp trick. By fowarding video without downloading to your phone you can save several Mb of data and time and space also.
Why Forward Whatsapp Videos Without Downloading?
Forward Whatsapp Videos Without Downloading
You may have watched a WhatsApp video earlier, and the same video was forwarded to you by your friend. But now you know that this sent video is the same that you watched a few days earlier (you can know it by seeing the video thumbnail). Suppose now you want to send this received video (which you haven’t downloaded yet) to others. So it makes no sense in downloading the video and forwarding rather than just forward the video without downloading.
Whenever you forward a video (or any file) to many friends or groups, the same video gets saved in your internal storage for that many times. Suppose you forwarded a video to 5 groups and 3 of your friends, then that video will be saved in your phone storage for eight times, and you don’t want this to happen. So you can utilize this trick to send WhatsApp videos without downloading.
