WhatsApp on Friday introduced its users to the 'Disappearing Messages' feature for new and existing chats all at once.
“Setting Disappearing Messages just got easier!” tweeted the Meta-owned instant messaging application.
The application’s Twitter handle also informed users about choosing the duration timer and then selecting and applying it to whichever chats they wanted.
The messaging application on its website informed users about sending messages that disappear on the app by enabling the feature.
“You can choose to have messages disappear after 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days,” WhatsApp shared on its website, adding that the feature can be turned on for multiple existing chats, and new messages sent in the chat will disappear after the duration you select.
The Meta-owned app added that most selection controls new messages within the chat.
“Messages sent or received before disappearing messages are enabled won’t be affected,” the application’s website stated.
