WhatsApp expands options for hidden messages – Belgium

(Belgium) From now on, WhatsApp will give users more choices about how long certain messages remain. The messaging service already introduced self-deleting messages last year, but now users are given more options on how long those messages can stay. The chat service announced this in a blog post on Monday.

WhatsApp introduced the ability to make messages disappear on their own last year. In August 2021, the option to make photos and videos disappear after viewing was added. Now the messaging service goes one step further. Until now, users had to indicate in each chat if they wanted to hide messages. From now on, it will be possible to check the disappearance of messages as a default option. In addition, the user can also choose from different conditions: 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days. However, users can still choose specific conversations to save messages. For group chats, it is the person who creates the chat who can choose whether or not to save the messages. Finally, WhatsApp says that the new feature is optional and has no effect on existing messages. (Belgium)
