I just discovered that 2 weeks ago (on regular whatsapp), and I was told that it isn't too new.
Maybe it was one of those things they pushed 4 months earlier for Apple users
Thanks.

Is there a way to select select videos from a group/chat to delete? ( I'm assuming not )

How about in the actual chat, by media?
I had a lot of fun with this for 2 days when I found it, tried finding the most messages I had with someone, I got almost 11,000 in a few months with one person!

Does that delete the media from the phone?

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
