WhatsApp Introduces View Once Photos and Videos Feature

If the content shared through the feature are not opened within 14 days, they will be deleted from the chat.

WhatsApp is introducing a new disappearing photo and video feature, in which users can send ‘View Once’ photos and clips, which will only be seen once by the receiver. The feature was first tested in beta in June and is now available to all users.

It works similarly to Instagram’s feature. It won’t be available again after the receiver taps the ‘picture’ or ‘video’ to see them. The recipient, on the other hand, can take screenshots or record screen recordings while viewing the photo or video, allowing them to see it again. Unlike Snapchat, WhatsApp does not inform the sender that a screenshot or screen recording has been taken.

Users can use the functionality by taking a photo or recording a video and then tapping on the circular icon with number one before sharing the media content. The same can be done with media content exchanged on WhatsApp via the Gallery app on the device. The user can only view the file once after it has been shared.

The patch note states that the media will not be saved in the recipient’s Photos or Gallery app. Once media is enabled, the recipient is unable to forward, save, star, or share photographs or videos sent or received with the view. If read receipts are enabled, users can only view if a recipient has opened a view once photo or video.

If the photographs and videos shared through the feature are not opened within 14 days, they will be deleted from the chat. Because WhatsApp chats are end-to-end encrypted, the ‘view once’ media is not available to the business.
