Days after WhatsApp announced the disappearance of the message functionality, Facebook it is also launching a similar feature for Messenger. The feature known as Vanish Mode has been rolled out for users in the United States and a handful of other countries. Instagram will also have the feature.
“We are thrilled to introduce Disappearance Mode on Messenger, which allows you to send messages that automatically disappear. The way it works is simple: Messages disappear after viewing and leaving the chat.” Facebook he said in a blog.
The feature is quite similar to the message disappearance feature announced by WhatsApp. If disappear mode is enabled, it would mean that any message sent to a contact or friend on Messenger will disappear once the message has been viewed or when the chat is closed. The recipient can take a screenshot of the message if they don’t want to lose the chat, but the sender will get a notification about it.
“To activate it, swipe up on your mobile device in an existing chat thread and you’re in disappear mode. Swipe up again and go back to normal chat. That’s it! Now you can send memes, GIFs, stickers or reactions to share what you really think when you can’t find the words, or just be silly with your friends without it staying in the chat history “, Facebook reading the blog.
The social media giant also said it has taken full notice of user safety and security. So only the users you are connected to can use disappear mode with you in a chat. You can also decide if you want to go into Vanish mode with a certain contact. Likewise, when someone takes a screenshot of your message, you will immediately be notified about it. The feature will arrive first on Messenger and then on Instagram.
Facebook he said he’s slowly rolling out vanishing mode on Messenger and Instagram. The feature is now available in the United States along with some other countries. The social media giant said the feature will be rolled out in more countries. Users can upgrade their messaging app to get the new functionality.
A few days ago, WhatsApp also formalized the functionality of disappearing messages. It was rolled out to beta testers and will be rolling out to Android and iOS users in the coming weeks. The feature would allow users to keep a message in a chat for seven days.
