WhatsApp Disappearing Messages Feature Now Live in Beta; How to Turn it On/Off

WhatsApp tests new wallpaper features, video muting, and a read later feature

Recently, WhatsApp introduced the much awaited "Disappearing Messages" feature.

There is also an edit menu under Read Later that lets users select multiple chats and remove them from the archive at the same time. So, what is the "Read Later" feature that WhatsApp is working on and how does the feature works? When will this WhatsApp feature rollout for users officially? We will answer these questions in this piece today.

If you want the messages to disappear momentarily after you send them, you should stick with Snapchat or Telegram.

Disappearing messages will also wipe out photos and videos after seven days, and while messages will disappear for both parties it's still possible to take screenshots or just simply copy messages before they are automatically deleted.

According to a report by WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp 2.20.207.2 beta for Android carries references of the ability to mute videos before sending them to a contact or setting them as a status update.

When you put a conversation under "Read Later", you will not receive new notifications from the chat. However, if a user fails to open WhatsApp in the seven day period, the message will disappear.

The mute video feature might seem like a tiny addition, but a lot of people will appreciate WhatsApp for offering it. Once the contact is added users will no longer receive any sort of notifications from the person whether it's a message, call or any other. Users will also get an "Edit" button in the "Read Later" section. The messaging platform is yet to reveal more details about the Read Later feature. As the feature is already being tested we can expect it to roll out to happen very soon for users globally.
