WhatsApp keeps on launching new features and usually reveals it before launch. A month back, it was revealed that WhatsApp is working on Self Destructing Messaging Feature. It seems like the feature is soon going to roll out for everyone as it is being tested on the latest Android beta Update. This feature was previously known as disappearing messages that allowed users to delete their messages automatically after a specified time.
WhatsApp Self Destructing Messaging Feature to Launch Soon
In the latest update, this feature is renamed as delete messages in latest beta and this feature is also implemented in the dark mode as well. One can enjoy this feature by updating WhatsApp to the latest version number 2.19.348. The update can also be installed via google play beta program. Once you have finished the first step, you will be able to see the disappearing messages feature, but its name will be Delete messages.
This feature can be enabled in contact info or group settings and can be enabled by administrators. As this feature is in a testing phase, only a few people will be able to enjoy it, and the rest of the people will have to wait longer.
User will get the ability to choose how long they want their message to appear before deleted. There are five options, including one hour, one day, one week, one month, and one year. As the feature is in testing process so these options can be changed once the stable version is launched. This disappearing messaging feature will be available in dark mode as well.
Right now, there are no words when this feature will be launched, but as it’s in the testing phase, we can expect to see it soon.
