WhatsApp is Working on Self-Destructing ‘Delete Message’ Feature


WhatsApp has released a new Android beta update. This latest version of WhatsApp beta shows the company restarting work on a previously reported feature. Earlier before, WhatsApp was spotted working on a Self-destructing feature that automatically deletes the previous messages. And now, the company has again started working on the same feature.

This feature is now renamed as “Delete Message” in the latest beta, and it has been implemented in the Dark Mode as well, which is also under development. The Delete Messages feature is also under development, therefore you won’t be able to see it even after you update to the latest beta version.

The latest version of WhatsApp beta for Android is 2.19.348 that can be installed via Google Play beta program or can alternatively be sideloaded using an APK from APK Mirror. Here in the latest version, you can find the ‘Delete Message’ in the Contact Info or Group Settings and can be enabled by administrators only. However, this feature is still in development so users will not be able to spot it even after updating to the latest version of WhatsApp beta.

The WhatsApp Delete Messages feature brings the ability to choose how long new messages will last before they are deleted. User can choose from – one hour, one day, one week, one month, and one-year options. These options can be changed while releasing to the stable version. Furthermore, this Delete Messages feature has also been implemented in Dark Mode as well which is also in the development phase.

As of now, this feature was only spotted by a developer and there is no fixed date on the arrival of this feature in the beta or stable version of WhatsApp for Android.
