WhatsApp recently announce to bring a more enhanced version for disappearing messages. The developers continue making adjustments in this section and adding new features. It’ll provide a more convenient and user-friendly experience.

This time, the new feature that has caught my attention is the default WhatsApp disappearing messages timer. Yes, the WhatsApp team is currently developing this function, so it’s yet to be available for the users.

Disappearing Mode:

For a better understanding, let’s summarise what disappearing mode is. WhatsApp disappearing mode is a message removing function, that deletes the messages and media from the receiver’s conversation history after a certain period of time.

As of now, if you want to send any disappearing messages in WhatsApp, it’ll only ask for two options either 24 hours or 7 days. Besides, the previous reports show that it’ll soon add maximum 90 days limit for messages. However, the media only last up to 7 days maximum at present.
