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
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.
