WhatsApp recently introduced a new feature that gives users the ability to make chat messages disappear.
Although the functionality is seriously different from what we expected, it is a feature that will serve many users who simply do not want to keep chatting for eternity.
Enable the new functionality in WhatsApp
Enabling the functionality is simple and quick. To do this, just follow the steps below. It should be noted that you can disable the functionality whenever you wish.
- Open WhatsApp
- Enter the chat you want to activate the feature
- Click on the chat or contact profile (above in the center)
- Click on “expired messages
- Click connect
As simple as that.
If you want to activate the functionality for a group on WhatsApp, it is exactly the same procedure. However, take into account that the person on the other end can always record the messages you send.
WhatsApp could have done more
Unfortunately, many users were not exactly satisfied with the restrictions of this new feature. This is because WhatsApp could have offered more possibilities.
There are applications like Wickr or even Snapchat that users have the possibility to choose how long they want the messages to remain active. On WhatsApp you only have the possibility to activate it for 7 days.
WhatsApp remains the most used communication application worldwide
Even after being sold to Facebook, the WhatsApp application did not download in the downloads. Quite the opposite. Today, WhatsApp is one of the most used applications worldwide for communication. I just wanted to see some design changes that have remained the same almost since the launch. That and an improvement in video and voice calls.
