WhatsApp is reportedly working on some new features including disappearing photos for both iOS and Android. The app already has a feature for disappearing messages, but disappearing photos will extend its use, and is popular on other platforms including Instagram, which is also owned by Facebook. WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo that has spotted the disappearing photos feature said that it could be added to WhatsApp in a future update. It also shared screenshots that show how the feature would work.
WABetaInfo shared through a tweet that WhatsApp is working on a self-destructing photos feature for iOS and Android. This feature will reportedly be added in a future update. The screenshots in the tweet show a new option next to ‘Add a caption’ text box — that appears before you send an attached media file — on the WhatsApp app, clicking on which will make the media disappear once you leave that particular chat. WABetaInfo points out users could be able to take screenshots of the self-destructing photos as a feature to detect them has not been added. WhatsApp’s parent company Facebook isn’t new to this concept as it already allows users to send a disappearing photo or video on Instagram.
