Renowned Instant messaging platform WhatsApp is set to launch a bunch of new features for its users and self- destructing messaging feature is the highly awaited feature.
Well, there is already a lot of anticipation around the Dark Theme from WhatsApp, the self-destructing messaging feature could be interesting as the name suggests, HT reports.
As speculated, this self-destructing feature is nothing like that of Snapchat as WhatsApp’s feature has a different purpose and will work differently.
The first thing to know is that WhatsApp’s self-destructing messages feature will launch as “Delete Messages.”
The new feature is essentially aimed at Group chat users along with the one-on-one users.
The purpose of “Delete Messages” is to help users automatically delete older messages.
“Groups have usually a lot of messages and this feature could help to save your phone storage, deleting old messages automatically (only administrators will be able to enable/disable it),” WABetainfo reported last month.
As for the time intervals, WhatsApp users will get five options to choose from – 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 1 year.
Apart from this feature, WhatsApp is set to launch other interesting features like ‘Dark Theme’, UPI-based WhatsApp Pay payment service, and deeper Messenger and Instagram integration among others.
