Global messaging application WhatsApp has been testing a lot of features on the Beta version before bringing it to everyone.

According to the reports, WhatsApp is working on a few features that will let users send disappearing/ self-destructing photos. WABetainfo has showcased the new feature via a Tweet in which we can see a new icon appearing inside the edit section of the media before sharing it.

The screenshots also disclosed that to send a disappearing photo, you need to choose photos from the gallery. Once selected, you will have to tap on the clock-like icon, which the app will display near the “Add a caption” bar. You are then all set to send disappearing photos to a contact. Users can see this process in the screenshots

The new disappearing photos feature works just like Instagram. The latter also lets you send self-destructing photos. After someone opens a disappearing photo or video you’ve sent them on Instagram, the message is no longer visible in their inbox unless you have allowed a replay of your message.
