Yesterday I wrote on Twitter that WhatsApp is working on new interesting features:
Today I gave a look at the next planned @WhatsApp features: you will like them.
Wait for my announcements to discover them.
No, it’s nothing about stickers (fortunately). 😅

Today we’re announcing the first one called Disappearing Mode!
If you love privacy, disappearing messages is the feature for you. You can enable it within Contact Info and Group Info, but it can happen that you have to manually enable it when a contact starts a new chat with you: for this reason WhatsApp is now developing a new option in WhatsApp Settings > Privacy that will automatically turn on disappearing messages in new chats!
As you can read in the screenshot, when the user enables Disappearing Mode, new chats will begin with disappearing messages on. WhatsApp rarely adds new privacy settings, and we hope to see more in this section the next weeks.
The feature is under development and it will be available in a future update on WhatsApp for Android and iOS: stay tuned for more announcements about new features!
