So, it would appear, that WhatsApp is going the Snapchat way. No, we don’t mean that it’s going to become irrelevant to anyone except 14-year-olds but only that WhatsApp 126.96.36.199 beta for Android has released a new feature called “expiring media”.
This means you get to send images, videos, and GIFs to anybody and it’ll disappear from their chats once viewed.
Just what we needed.
According to a report on NDTV, the company will also include an option button that’ll enable you to allow your expiring media file to viewed only once.
WhatsApp’s more aesthetic sister, Instagram, also allows this feature which is super helpful if you’re planning on sending nudes. Now, WhatsApp will take that feature to over 20 crore users worldwide.
