Whatsapp’s Delete Messages Feature: Find Out How It Works
This feature, as the name suggests, will enable you to delete your messages without leaving a trail. Currently, if you delete a message, it still shows the text “This message has been deleted”. However, with these disappearing messages, you will now be able to delete the messages and no such text will appear either.
When this option is enabled, this feature can be toggled in the Contact Info option or Group settings. This option is available for both individual and group chats, and has already been made compatible with the Dark Theme that will soon be introduced in Whatsapp.
Only administrators of a group can enable this feature in a group.
You can set the time for the messages to be deleted, and there are four options, other than the off option – 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 1 year.
There is still no news about when this feature will be available.
