This month, WhatsApp had legitimately announced that it will be introducing vanishing Messages, a feature that automatically erases your WhatsApp messages after a certain period of time. The new feature is now finally rolling out for everyone.
The details of the new feature are already there on an FAQ page created by WhatsApp, and users can now permit this option to delete messages for separate or group chats after seven days. Follow this guide, as well tell you how to enable vanishing messages in WhatsApp.
Follow these steps to enable disappearing messages in WhatsApp.
Open a WhatsApp chat> tap Contact Info > scroll down to find the **Disappearing Messages feature.
The feature is disabled by default. Tap Continue, followed by tapping Onto enable this feature.
You’ll have to enable this feature individually for each chat. Once you do, your messages will automatically be deleted after seven days.
You cannot decide the period before the messages vanish in a chat, which means the only option you have right now is seven days, at least for now. Rival apps like Telegram give users multiple options to choose from but WhatsApp has decided to start with just a single time setting.
