WhatsApp had a record year. The instant messaging platform is intended to provide a number of new functions for its users. While the dark theme already promises a lot of anticipation, the self-destructing messaging function is also eagerly awaited.
In the last beta updates of WhatsApp, speculation has already been made that the self-destructive messaging function is similar to that of Snapchat. It turns out that WhatsApp’s self-destructive messaging function works completely differently. The purpose of the function is also very different.
The first thing you need to know is that WhatsApp self-destructing messaging feature starts as “delete messages”.
The function is mainly aimed at group chat users. It will also be available for one-on-one messages. With “Delete Messages” users can automatically delete older messages. It will likely also help users save space on their devices.
“Groups usually have a lot of messages, and this feature can help conserve your phone memory and automatically delete old messages (only administrators can enable/disable them),” WABetainfo reported last month.
For the time intervals, WhatsApp users have five options to choose from 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 1 year.
In addition to self-destructive messages, WhatsApp will introduce features such as “Dark Theme”, the UPI-based WhatsApp Pay payment service and a more comprehensive messenger and Instagram integration.
