WhatsApp new disappearing messages option

WhatsApp  introduced a new feature for disappearing messages as an option. This new  feature will now allow WhatsApp users to enable disappearing messages on chats to automatically delete messages after seven days.

You can either enable the option in individual chats, also group admins will now be able to enable disappearing messages in group chats. Quote from WhatsApp representative.

“We’re starting with 7 days because we think it offers peace of mind that conversations aren’t permanent, while remaining practical so you don’t forget what you were chatting about, The shopping list or store address you received a few days ago will be there while you need it, and then disappear after you don’t.”


WhatsApp disappearing messages will also wipe out photos and videos after seven days. Though messages will disappear for both sender and recipient it’s still possible to take screenshots or just simply copy messages before they’re automatically deleted.

You’ll need to enable disappearing messages on a per group or contact basis. Once the feature has rolled out fully, it will be available as a new option in the contact section of each friend in WhatsApp. The setting won’t wipe out older messages, and only affects new messages once it’s enabled by either party. WhatsApp says it will start rolling out disappearing messages to all users this month
