WhatsApp is closer to launching the disappearing messages feature. The messaging app posted about the feature on its FAQ page which suggests the feature will be available soon. As the name suggests, disappearing messages disappear after a recipient reads them. The time interval can be selected by users on WhatsApp.
It has long been rumored that WhatsApp was working on the disappearing messages feature. Traces of functionality have been spotted several times in beta updates.
Explaining the disappearance of messages to users, WhatsApp wrote in its FAQ page: “You can send disappearing messages on WhatsApp by enabling disappearing messages. Once enabled, new messages sent in individual or group chat will disappear after seven days. The most recent selection checks all messages in the chat. This setting will not affect any messages you have previously sent or received in the chat. In an individual chat, both users can enable or disable the disappearance of messages. In a group chat, only group administrators can enable or disable the disappearance of messages.
WhatsApp has also listed some of the disappearing message features. It says the disappearing message won’t be visible if a user doesn’t open WhatsApp within seven days. However, the message preview may still appear in notifications until the messaging app is opened.
If a user forwards a disappearing message to a chat with disappearing messages off, the message will not disappear in the forwarded chat. If the user manages to create a backup before sending a message that disappears, it will appear in the backup.
Another way to save the message from missing is to take a screenshot and save it before it goes away. Users can only copy and save the content from the disappearing message. However, if nothing else works, users can click the message image from another camera and save it.
Coming to media in disappearing messages, WhatsApp says that “the media you receive in WhatsApp will automatically be downloaded to your photos. If message disappearance is enabled, the multimedia content sent in the chat will disappear but will be saved on your phone if it is active. automatic download. You can disable automatic download in WhatsApp Settings> Data and storage usage. “
