WhatsApp has become our primary form of communication, which is why it’s exciting every time they add a new feature!
After they finally announced that you may be able to permanently mute group chats, they’ll soon be implementing another new feature that reminds us of Snapchat.
According to The Verge, WhatsApp is introducing the disappearing chat feature, which allows you to send messages that will disappear within seven days.
Anyone can enable the option in individual chats and group admins will be allowed to enable disappearing messages in group chats.
“We’re starting with seven days because we think it offers peace of mind that conversations aren’t permanent while remaining practical so you don’t forget what you were chatting about. The shopping list or store address you received a few days ago will be there while you need it, and then disappear after you don’t,” said a WhatsApp spokesperson.
This feature isn’t only limited to text chats but will also wipe out photos and videos after seven days.
While the messages may disappear for all parties involved in a chat, it is still possible to take screenshots or to just simple copy messages down before they disappear.
Once the feature is fully rolled out, it will be available as a new option in the contact section of each chat on WhatsApp.
Older messages will remain unaffected by the new feature and will only affect new messages once it’s enabled.
WhatsApp users can expect this new feature of disappearing messages sometime this month.
