Popular instant messaging service, WhatsApp has added a new feature that gives users better control over their messages and how long they stay visible, with default disappearing messages and customizable durations.
The Meta-owned platform, which has over 2 billion users worldwide, is now offering users the option of having their messages disappear after 24 hours or 90 days, in addition to the seven-day timeframe it first announced last year.
When this option is activated, any new one-on-one conversations that you or another person initiate will be scheduled to disappear after the period of time you choose. When creating a group conversation, WhatsApp has included a new option that allows you to turn it on for the groups you create. This new feature is optional, and it has no effect on any of your current chats.
