After officially announcing the disappearing messages feature, WhatsApp is now rolling out the feature to beta testers. According to reports, WhatsApp is currently rolling out the feature and it may take some time for users to get the feature. Earlier this week, WhatsApp announced the feature alongside Always Mute, WhatsApp Pay, and others.
According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp has started rolling out the new message disappearance feature, some of the users with a stable beta on Android have received the feature so far. “WhatsApp is now starting to distribute disappearing messages for some users. It means that the implementation is very slow in reality, so there is nothing wrong if you have updated WhatsApp and you still don’t see the feature. Let’s see how to check if the feature is already available for you. Open Contact Information or Group Information (if you are a group administrator) and you should see a new line called Disappearing Messages, “reads the Wabetainfo report.
Wabetainfo shared screenshots of what the disappearing message feature will look like once implemented. In the screenshots you can see, the toggle button to activate and deactivate the message disappearance function. So, if you enable the feature for a particular chat, messages to that contact will be sent to the chat after seven days. Recipients can save the message before it disappears. He can take a screenshot of the message or copy and save it on another platform. They also have the option to forward the message.
When you turn on the pop-up chat feature for a contact, you’ll see the expiration icon placed next to the contact’s profile picture. Also, when you turn on disappearing messages for a chat, the recipient will be notified about it. WhatsApp will also inform the recipient that new messages will disappear from this chat after 7 days. Likewise, when you disable the disappearing message feature, you will receive information about it directly in the chat window.
“The process of receiving disappearing messages is completely random: WhatsApp is initially starting to enable it for a few users, making the rollout very slow, and in the coming days the activation will be extended to more users. Some iOS users should start seeing the feature when the next major iOS beta update is available on TestFlight, ”the WhatsApp feature tracker said in its report.
The feature will be rolled out for Android and iOS users by the end of this month.
