Whatsapp: Here’s how ‘Disappearing messages’ feature will work

Being told that if you do not open the chat on WhatsApp for 7 days, the messages will disappear. Read on to learn more about this upcoming WhatsApp feature. It is expected that WhatsApp will roll out the “Disappearing Messages” feature soon.

Wabetainfo claims that the Facebook-owned company will release the feature with one of the upcoming updates. Prior to release, the quoted source has revealed more details about the “message rejected”. WhatsApp users will be allowed to enable the feature at any time.

However, you will not get the option to customize the time. Once you enable “leave messages”, all new messages will expire after only seven days. You cannot set the time when you want them to disappear. The quoted source says that if you do not open the chat for 7 days, the messages will disappear. But, if you have not approved the notification panel, you will be able to check the messages there.

Another post:

“When you reply to a message, the initial message is quoted. If you reply to the missing message, the quoted text may remain in the chat after seven days. If the missing message is forwarded to the chat with the missing message, the message does not disappear in the forwarded chat, ”Wabetainfo reported.

That being said, if you back up your chats before they disappear, you’ll find them on Google Drive. However, if you plan to restore those missing messages from backup, you will not be able to find them as they will be deleted. Weirdly, WhatsApp will allow users to forward or take screenshots of missing messages. You will also be allowed to save fading images and videos in your camera roll. For this, there will be an option to save to camera role, which you have to enable manually.

The quoted source also stated that “Missing messages cannot disappear in WhatsApp after 7 days. This happens when you receive a missing message, disable the option in the contact information, and quote the message. “Disappearing Messages feature will be available for iOS, Android, KaiOS and web / desktop users. It will not be enabled by default and to use it, you will have to enable it manually.
