Whatsapp has announced that it has enabled end-to-end encryption for all users which includes images and videos. Whatsapp has already encrypted messages in 2014 but only text messages were encrypted. Now even Whatsapp employees wont be able read your messages!
In a blog post by Whatsapp:
Messages between WhatsApp users are protected with an endto-end encryption protocol so that third parties and WhatsApp cannot read them and so that the messages can only be decrypted by the recipient. All types of WhatsApp messages (including chats, group chats, images, videos, voice messages and files) and WhatsApp calls are protected by end-to-end encryption. WhatsApp servers do not have access to the private keys of WhatsApp users, and WhatsApp users have the option to verify keys in order to ensure the integrity of their communication.

This encryption is enabled for all platforms which includes Android, IOS, Windows phone and Whatsapp WEB.
