WhatsApp enhances disappearing messages option


The Meta-owned messaging app, WhatsApp has added new functionality to its disappearing messages option which allows users to be able to make all new chats automatically disappear by default after 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days.

The new feature enables the WhatsApp users to turn on the automatic deletion of messages in new one-on-one chats after a specific period.

It will give more options to the users for setting a desired period of time for the automatic deletion of messages.

Earlier, the users had gotten the option of disappearing messages for seven days only when the feature was first launched in November last year. After the latest update, the options are enhanced to 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days.
