WhatsApp is testing self-disappearing messages in new update
San Francisco: WhatsApp is testing a key feature to give its users an ability to self-destruct their messages after a set period of time.
The new update is aimed at preserving the privacy of conversations as it will allow the users to set a time limit on the messages, after which the sent messages will automatically disappear.
“As the name suggests, any message eligible to be ‘disappeared’, will be automatically deleted from the chat!” according to WABetaInfo.
Disappearing Messages feature would be useful for those who share sensitive information on WhatsApp.
Currently, messages can only be set to delete after five seconds or one hour.
