WhatsApp for Android pushed yet another update for Beta testers which brings a couple of innovative features to the app. The latest WhatsApp Beta version 2.20.110 brings a few improvements to the app with the ability to use multiple accounts on the same device.
WhatsApp is undoubtedly the most popular communication cum Instant Messaging app with over a Billion daily users across the globe. India is the country with the highest number of its users. The update is now adding limitations for Indian users for updating their video status.
What’s interesting here is the new Expiring messages feature. Currently, we are making use of the Delete for Everyone feature to delete the messages by accident from the recipient’s device. Now, the Expiring Messages is the same feature but a unique way.
When we delete the messages using the Delete for Everyone feature, the recipient will see the message in the chat window that you have deleted a message. Sometimes, recipients also read out the messages from the notifications.
Expiring Messages will be deleted from the Chat window without any notifications or message in the chat window. The recipient will not be able to see that you have deleted a message as there will be no signs left of the messages which were deleted by you from the chat window. The same feature can be enabled for group chat as well.
For group chats, the Expiring Messages feature will be made available for the Group Admins only. You will be allowed to set up the time interval for the messages from 1 day, 1 week etc. Depending on your needs, you can set the time interval for the messages.
Once you enable this feature for a particular message, a timer icon will appear on the profile picture. The same icon can be seen by the recipient with the expire message.
This feature is currently in its beta phase and will be made available for a limited number of users only.
Apart from this, the Video Status feature will limit the length of the video to 15 seconds. Users won’t be allowed to upload the video above 15 seconds of length.
