What is WhatsApp’s ‘Disappearing Messages’
Once this feature is enabled, all new messages will expire after 7 days. That is, users cannot set the time for the message to disappear according to their own.
Sources say that the message will disappear if you do not open the chat for 7 days. But, if you have not cleared the notification panel, then you will be able to check the message there.
“This setting won’t affect messages you previously sent or received in the chat,” WhatsApp said on its support page.
The report said, ‘When you reply to a message, the first message is the quote. If you reply to a dispensing message, the quoted text will be available even after 7 days.
If a dispatching message is forwarded when this new feature is off, then the message will not disappear in the forward chat.
It is being said that if you back up the chats before the message disappears, you will be able to see them on Google Drive. However, if you backup If you want to restore those disparate messages, then it will not be possible, because they will be deleted.
The special thing is that WhatsApp users will be able to take screenshots along with forwarding the dispensing message. Users will be able to save the disappointing pictures and videos in the gallery.
For this, there will be a Save to Camera Roll option, which will have to be manually enabled.
