Today we’re announcing the feature called Disappearing Mode!
If you love privacy, disappearing messages is the feature for you. You can enable it within Contact Info and Group Info, but it can happen that you have to manually enable it when a contact starts a new chat with you.”
When a user activates the Disappearing Mode, new chats will begin with disappearing messages enabled.
When this feature becomes accessible, go to WhatsApp Settings, Privacy, and then enable the Disappearing Mode function.
Beginning May 15, users may lose access to some WhatsApp features before they approve the new terms. For example, these users would first lose access to the chat list. Then, audio and video calls will stop operating, and the user will no longer receive new message updates on WhatsApp.
Disappearing Mode will be available in a future update for iOS and Android users, but no date has been set.
