WhatsApp to Launch a New Feature for Android Soon

Then, once a message gets across the duration, it will automatically be deleted.

WhatsApp Delete messages feature.

WABetaInfo tracks all the developments for WhatsApp and has spotted a feature called "Delete Messages" on iOS beta versions 2.20.10.23 and 2.20.10.24. Once the receiver has read the message, the timer begins, and the message automatically gets deleted from the sender's sent, and the receiver's inbox folders, when the set time limit expires.

If you are looking for some way to use this new feature with a specific contact, for now, you can use it by creating a group with that specific individual and then use this feature as it can only be activated in groups.

WhatsApp can be used on desktop, on Android and on iPhone as well but the app up to this time dearths support for iPad.

"Groups have usually a lot of messages and this feature could help to save your phone storage, deleting old messages automatically (only administrators will be able to enable/disable it)".

More so, the long-awaited dark mode of WhatsApp is finally set for release, and supposedly, several users have already tried it. Previously this new feature was expected to be available for both personal chat and group chat, but now reports claim that this feature will be limited to group chat only. The new splash screen of WhatsApp will essentially let the users see the app's logo every time they open WhatsApp on their Apple devices.

Other new additions to the app expected in 2020 include the arrival of ads on WhatsApp Stories, in much the same way they now are part of the feed on Instagram and Facebook Stories, as well as a "Reverse Image Search", which will allow users to find out where forwarded images have originated from.

WABetaInfo discovered the feature on the latest iOS beta version. This feature will reduce the amount of the instant messaging app's network data usage.

Either way, the tool will be placed in the options of the Group Settings tab. However, it is not known if WhatsApp is working on the same functionality.
