“WhatsApp” is testing a new technology for IOS and Android systems .. Pictures are fleeting


A report published by WABetaInfo revealed that developers are working on WhatsApp to provide a new feature for instant removal of conversations.

According to the “Next Web” site, this new feature is related to photos, since WhatsApp had previously announced the ephemeral chat feature last year, but it was only limited to text chats.

The site explained that the new feature will be distinguished in the speed of removing images in it, for the time it takes for text messages to disappear automatically, which is up to 7 days.

And WhatsApp officials will adjust this period, so that the removal process of the photos takes place as soon as the user leaves the conversation directly.

It will also not allow downloading these images, and the feature will be available for both IOS and Android operating systems, but WhatsApp has not yet announced the date of its activation.

WhatsApp raises controversy

The application “WhatsApp” had returned to stir up controversy over the amendment of the privacy policy, announcing in press statements his intention to amend the policies during the coming period.

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, has previously announced that it is close to activating a controversial update to the privacy policy, but it will allow users to read it “at a time” and will also display a notice providing additional information, according to Reuters.

The instant messaging application had informed users in January that it was preparing a new privacy policy, according to which it might exchange user data with Facebook and its affiliates, which was considered by thousands around the world as a threat to the privacy of about 2 billion users of the most famous instant messaging application.

This sparked global criticism and pushed users to migrate to competing applications, including Signal and Telegram, which made WhatsApp postpone the implementation of the new policy until next May.
