WhatsApp introduces new features for disappearing messages today
A few days earlier, WABetainfo had reported that WhatsApp will launch new features that deal with disappearing messages. This app is launching to enhance users’ experience.
This new function will go by the name named “New Durations and Default Timer at present. These new functions are designed to assist users to handle messages that are disappearing.
The first of these features will let users have control over the duration of new messages. Prior to this, messages marked as ‘disappearing’ messages’ would disappear within seven days. Now, WhatsApp will implement measures to make sure that the duration is controlled.
Users can configure users’ “disappearing messages” option to various durations, like the duration of 24 hours or 90 days, or up to seven days.
The other alternative is setting a default timer for chats that are new. The user can activate this feature by logging into the Privacy Settings for WhatsApp. If the feature is enabled, users will be able to turn off the messages options available in all-new chats, for a certain duration. If the user is able to enable the default timer for messages for their chats, their existing chats as well as new groups won’t get affected due to the change in timer.
