Angled launch projectile vectors

Problem

A ball is kicked at an angle with negligible air resistance as seen below.
Along the bottom is a black horizontal line. To the left and above the line is a small grey ball. A dashed grey arrow arcs from the left side to the right side. A black dot is on the left side of the arc and is labeled P.
How is the magnitude of the horizontal velocity changing at point P?
