WhatsApp Testing New Disappearing Messages In New Update
WhatsApp is offering disappearing messages feature in their new update which will help keeping private chats safe from prying eyes
Recently, WhatsApp is testing “disappearing messages” that will self-destruct after they are sent. The intention of the feature is to preserve the privacy of the conversation. These texts messages can be set to self-destruct in five seconds or an hour. There’s literally no in between, either the whole chat will disappear or none of them do.
Although we do not know yet if the feature will be available publicly anytime soon. According to Wabetainfo, the latest beta version of the app is trying to lay down the foundation for such disappearing messages feature, but the feature is still under testing.
For now, the feature is only available in the beta version of the app for Android. This feature will be useful for sending sensitive info without the fear of privacy breach.
WhatsApp has been elevating its safety and privacy features. From end-to-end encryption, WhatsApp allows its users to unsent messages from one hour, eight minutes up to sixteen seconds.
There’s a good chance that the “disappearing messages feature” will change a bit before it is publicly available to all the WhatsApp users.
