WhatsApp allows us to send text messages that have an expiration time. Basically, we can activate the temporary messages in the chats so that after seven days a specific message is deleted from the chat; we can leave them there without worrying since the process of elimination or self-destruction is automatic.

Interestingly, Facebook, the company behind WhatsApp, is working on a new tool to transfer the self-destruction of messages to the photographs we share as well.

This new option allows you to only see the photo once and when it is spotted you will get the following message: “This media content will disappear once you leave this chat.”

This is what the media reports WABetaInfo. Not only can it be set to self-destruct time, but the option to activate the single view of the photos will also be enabled.

In no case will the photographs be saved on the recipient’s device. For now, this option is only enabled in the beta version of WhatsApp. The date on which it will be enabled in the worldwide version is unknown.
