WhatsApp Disappearing messages feature available on iOS now but in beta version


Although it’s already available for Android users, the much-talked-about WhatsApp Disappearing messages feature is coming soon for iOS users too. As per reports, the Facebook-owned popular messaging platform has started rolling out this feature for iOS beta users.

If all goes well in the beta-phase, the final version of the much-awaited feature will soon hit iOS. While the exact timeline is not known, the Disappearing messages feature is expected to be introduced in the next few weeks, in a phased manner.

It must be noted that the Disappearing messages isn’t about texts only. There’s also disappearing media, which goes away as soon as the recipient opens it. The feature is like one of those disappearing videos and photos, which you can send in Instagram’s chat. Instagram calls this feature “view once” and has to be available to both parties, whereas the Disappearing text messages take 7 days before they disappear.

Interestingly, there’s a dedicated timer in the caption input field when sending media and the sender receives a notification once the recipient has viewed the photo/video message.
