It is anticipated that WhatsApp will upgrade its vanishing messages feature, taking another cue from Snapchat. People will be able to keep the disappearing messages even after they have vanished thanks to this new functionality. Here are the pertinent details.
WhatsApp Testing Kept Messages Feature
According to a recent claim from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp will soon offer a new Kept Messages option in the Session Info part of a chat.
Users will be able to keep them even after disappearing messages have vanished since this would enable the conversion of disappearing messages into regular communications. It will be comparable to how storing a disappearing Snapchat message allows you to save it.
All chat participants are reportedly able to access the option, which is claimed to be available when disappearing messages are enabled.
For us to get a better understanding of the feature, WABetaInfo also supplied a screenshot of it. Look at the illustration below.
It is made clear that Kept Messages are still being developed, and there is no information on when this feature, whether it is beta or stable, will be accessible to users. Soon, we’ll learn more about this. Keep an eye on things.
Another feature for group chats is currently being tested on the Meta-owned messaging service, allowing users to view previous participants for a period of 60 days. You can find this information by going to the Group Info section. This is how the new section is anticipated to appear.
