You would soon be able to send messages through WhatsApp that would disappear at the end of the predetermined time period. If you have been following up the new features and updates on WhatsApp for quite some time now, you would be aware of the Delete for Everyone feature that has already gone quite popular. The new self destructing message option would be an added advantage.
It may be interesting enough to notice that SnapChat has been offering the self destructing services since the last eight years or so. The new feature on the popular instant messaging services would be introduced soon enough. The feature is available in beta as of now and will make its way into the stable version quite soon.
Highly informed sources available to us indicated that the beta version v2.19.275 will offer you access to a setting wherein you would be able to configure your messages to self destruct. However, WhatsApp has not yet confirmed the availability of the features as yet officially.
It may be noticed that the self destruct feature is not something new in the realm of instant messaging. It has been around since long with SnapChat beginning the trend. In recent times, it is the other popular messaging service Telegram that has introduced the functionality long ago.
So, what makes the self-destructing messages so popular and powerful?
If the rumours and information available online can be believed, you can configure the self-destruction window to anywhere between five seconds to an hour. It may be noticed that the similar feature has been made available on the sibling app from the Facebook family, Facebook Messenger. Referred to as Secret Chat, the feature lets you have an incognito conversation with your friends.
The availability of the new beta feature was brought to us by WAbetaInfo recently. There is no word on when this feature will be made available on the platform for all users. However, finding a new security feature that tends to enhance your privacy levels should be much welcome.
