WhatsApp Adds More Options To Disappering Messages

Users can now select from 3 durations of disappearing messages, 24-hours, 7-days, and 90-days.

WhatsApp┬áis one of the older instant messaging services in the history of “Smartphones.” Yes, other messaging services existed before WhatsApp, but WhatsApp revolutionised instant messaging for users in India. But, messaging over the internet will always leave a digital footprint. You might also delete messages from your account and the receivers, but data is surely going to be stored. Privacy is and always will be a concern and to increase privacy features WhatsApp added more options to the already available feature “disappearing messages.”

WhatsApp announced in a blog post, “Today we are excited to provide our users with more options to control their messages and how long they stick around, with default disappearing messages and multiple durations.” It simply means there will be more options for WhatsApp’s disappearing messages feature.

Earlier, disappearing messages came with only one option of 7 days. Now, that changes with two additional time frame to choose from, 24-hours and 90-days. More options to choose from is always better for the user. While we still don’t have an option to customise the duration of messages, the addition of two more options gives us hope that it won’t be long before we get to select a custom duration for disappearing messages.

Users also get an option to enable disappearing messages by default for all “new” chats and groups. When enabled, all new one-on-one chats you or another person start will be set to disappear at your chosen duration. It also works the same for groups. However, it is an optional feature and does not change or delete any existing chats.
