Self-destructive messages have become a common feature among various platforms like Snapchat, Signal, Facebook messenger and telegram. Now WhatsApp is planning to bring this new feature for its users. With this new feature, you will be able to send a private message which will disappear by itself once the time period set by you is over. The message won’t appear anywhere and it is the best way to send any private messages to the people.
As of now, this feature is still in the alpha stage and the company released it to some beta users already. You will get an option to set the timer and in the beta version, there are two timer options- 5 seconds and one hour. You can click on any one of them and the messages will disappear as the time is over. This feature is available only for the WhatsApp groups in the beta testing stage.
WABetaInfo is the first site to report this new feature. This feature will let the users send sensitive information across the platform without any worries. Snapchat is the first one to start these self-destructive messages and then Telegram and even Gmail have brought this feature. Now, WhatsApp is bringing it to the groups present in it.
As the feature is still in the alpha stage it is going to take a while before it hits all the users. The WhatsApp beta version 2.19.275 on Android devices got it already but not all the beta users have this feature yet. The company released it for only some users to check how effective the feature is. Remaining users have to wait for some time now.
