Do you like to use Instagram? The app is very popular with young people and adults to share their photos and videos with a series of effects and filters. Through them you can post anything that catches the attention of your friends, in order to get the famous “likes”.

But Instagram has also become that application where a large part of people like to exchange text messages with DMs.

One of the tools that many like to use are ephemeral messages, those conversations that quickly disappear when you close the chat window. However, it appears that they will be eliminated for life.

As reported by WABeta Info, ephemeral messages have stopped working on all devices in the world. These were simply activated when a person swiped up the chat of one of their contacts.

The source reveals that this stoppage is due to “new regulations for courier services in Europe.”

This Digital Services Standard, informs the web Engadget, “We found transparency obligations with the algorithms used for recommendations, external audits, access to data from large platforms for research or the obligation to maintain a record of users who sell online, to help identify those who sell goods illegal. “

At the moment this regulation affects Facebook and Instagram, who have eliminated the function to automatically delete messages or self-destruct. It is unknown if this will also be done in WhatsApp when it puts into operation those texts that disappear in 7 days if they are not read.
