WhatsApp update will allow users to save messgaes before they are deleted

AVOID LOOKING IF YOU LIKE TO CLEAN UP YOUR WhatsApp messages after you send them.

According to reports, a function that would let users preserve discussions before they are completely destroyed is being tested by the American chat application.

The messaging service, which is owned by Facebook’s parent corporation Meta, may incorporate the functionality in a future update, according to tech website WABetaInfo’s analysis of a recent test.

The popular “disappearing messages” setting in the app would effectively be rendered useless by the “kept message” feature.

Users of that programme can set their communications to automatically expire once they are sent.

According to your options, you can decide whether messages should disappear after 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days.

Instead of accepting the update as is, users would be able to choose which messages they wanted to keep.

Disappeared communications would be deleted from the conversation but would remain preserved in a separate folder that could be accessed whenever desired.

Unless an administrator chooses to restrict access, all participants in the relevant conversation can view saved messages.

The administrator would purportedly have the last say over whether or not messages in group chats could be stored.

The writers of disappearing messages may subsequently decide to take them out of the retained messages folder, according to WABetaInfo.

By doing this, it is made sure that nobody else in the conversation may see it or save it for later.

As a result of that addition, the creators of the disappearing message continue to have ultimate control over who, if anyone, sees it.

It might ease concerns that the retained messages folder might render obsolete disappearing messages.

The retained messaging function is currently under development, so it is unknown when it will be launched, according to WABetaInfo.

Disappearing messages aim to increase privacy and reduce storage requirements on devices.
