Whatsapp introduces novelties in temporary messages

WhatsApp has announced new options within temporary messages with which you can set complete chats with this configuration or manage the time they remain saved in the messaging application.

The company introduced temporary messages - which are automatically deleted after a given time - in November of last year and this summer a function for photos and videos to disappear immediately after they have seen them once.

Behind these privacy functions is the idea that it is the user who must decide "how long a message must exist". Now the messaging application has expanded the options it offers with the introduction of default temporary messages and new temporary options.

Temporary messages, once activated, disappear after seven days, so far the only available temporary option. Since this Monday, you can also choose between two other new durations: 24 hours and 90 days.

On the other hand, the application has also incorporated the default temporary messages, with which users can activate temporary messages by default on all new-created chats, whether individual or group.

When activating this novelty, all new chats will be configured to disappear after the duration that the user chooses. This new feature is optional and "does not change or eliminate" none of the chats, as the company has explained to Europe Press in a statement.

For those who choose to activate the default temporary messages, the application will show a notification to the participants so that at all times know what the selected configuration is. "In this way, it is clear that your choice applies to all your conversations on whatsapp from that moment on and that it is not something personal with anyone," they point out from the company.
