Earlier this week, Android users got disappearing messages on WhatsApp and now iOS users are also joining in. This lets you send texts and media that will automatically vanish after 7 days in both personal and group chats.
The update is a gradual one so some will get it sooner than others. You’ll also have to enable diapering messages for every chat individually. The step by step listed on WhatsApp’s FAQ page instructs users to tap the contact’s name within the chat and then enable the disappearing messages prompt.
Turning the option off follows the same procedure but you select off in the final step. Messages will be deleted even if the recipient has not opened them.
