WhatsApp Update Will Give Users Option of Self Deleting Media Feature
In an update, WhatsApp is supposedly adding new features to their program, including the option of having images, videos, and GIFs delete after contacts have seen it once, DailyMail reported.
WABetalnfo, an independent WhatsApp company, has discovered the feature.
A button next to the image will allow users to access this feature before sending any media, WABetalnfo said.
The feature will not be able to delete images from a recipient's camera roll, so if your contacts phone is set to save photos automatically, they will still be able to view it.
The new feature is expected to arrive on WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.20.2011, currently without a release date.
WABetalnfo reported that along with expiring media, they would also introduce self-deleting messages with a seven day fixed period.
Unlike deleted messages, expired images will leave no trace of having ever been sent.
WhatsApp is owned by Facebook, who purchased the company back in February of 2014 for about $19 billion.
All private messages sent using WhatsApp are protected and secured by end-to-end-encryption by default.
A total of two billion people, more than a quarter of the earth's population, uses the WhatsApp messaging service, WhatsApp, revealed in February.
