WhatsApp will give users additional control over Disappearing Messages

Users may be able to save specific messages.

Previously, WhatsApp had been experimenting with tweaks to its vanishing messages feature. The company is now experimenting with new functionality to prevent some of the communications from being permanently destroyed. Any messages that are regarded to be vital to the members of the group can be tagged as exceptions, according to a new report from WABetaInfo(opens in new tab). There isn’t a lot of information regarding how the feature works right now. As testing progresses, we may expect more updates from the blog in the following weeks.

WABetaInfo, on the other hand, can display screenshots of the feature, and we might see some parallels to the starred messages. All users will be able to view and manage their saved messages in the ‘Kept Messages’ section. Starred messages, based on what we know, work in a similar way, but without telling other members of a group. The screenshot also verifies that both functions would be active in the app at the same time.

Increased message control

Disappearing communications were first announced with a 7-day time limit. However, the feature has recently been enhanced to allow users to select whether or not to delete group chats after 90 days. WhatsApp is also slated to release new features soon that will give you more control over your conversations.

It was previously reported that the corporation was experimenting with new methods for sending disappearing messages. When a user activates the feature, only chats that occur after the setting has been activated are cleared within the chosen time frame. However, users may soon be able to use the same settings across all of their chats.

A new user interface is also on the way

WhatsApp’s user interface should also be improved. Minor modifications to the app’s top tabs are expected, as well as a new feature to sift through chats. However, the user interface has become outdated, and it would be fantastic if the corporation updated it as well. The Android version of the instant messaging software has remained nearly unchanged, whereas the iOS version has a completely redesigned UI. Although you may customise the themes and backgrounds for a more personalised experience, I like Android’s default theme.
