WhatsApp View-Once Messages

WhatsApp is one of the most reliable messaging platforms we have today that had withstood the test of time for more than a decade. It can be considered the most popular in the category of applications of its ilk.

Despite receiving competition from Telegram and Signal, WhatsApp continues to maintain its relevance and a big reason is that its owner, Meta, continues to update its features at regular intervals so that it works well for the new generation.

Even a two year old iOS is considered outdated these days, so it becomes important to for a platform like WhatsApp to bring out new features or at least upgrade them to cater to the fickle tastes of the users.

In the midst of it all, the latest news is that WhatsApp view-once message functionality will no longer be available on their WhatsApp Web/Desktop, Windows WhatsApp, along with WhatsApp beta for macOS.

The reports suggest that due to the view-once feature, the screenshot blocking functionality will no longer work, which is why the makers decided to remove it from the desktop.

The view once message option provides an additional layer of security as the messages can be opened and screenshotted on the desktop, while the sender’s privacy can be put into jeopardy, while the recipient can no longer take a screenshot of the message once it has been accessed on PC due to WhatsApp upgrades.

WhatsApp has come out with four new features to enhance user experience: establishing in-chat polls ability, Communities on WhatsApp, Groups for up to 1024 members, and 32-person video conferencing.

The ad in question had a premise where Apple fans are eagerly waiting for the launch of a foldable iPhone but have to wait, while Samsung has raced ahead in terms of foldable smartphones, implying that Apple users will have a long wait before getting their foldable iPhone.
