WhatsApp Disappearing Messages are now rolling out on both iOS and Android devices, allowing users to specify that their message should automatically vanish after a set time has elapsed.

The feature is available for individual as well as group chats. However, in group chats, the group admins are able to enable disappearing messages in group chats.

The Facebook-owned company said the goal is “to make conversations on WhatsApp feel as close to in-person as possible, which means they shouldn’t have to stick around forever”.

“That’s why we’re excited to introduce the option to use disappearing messages on WhatsApp. When the ‘disappearing messages’ feature is turned on, new messages sent to a chat will disappear after 7 days, helping the conversation feel lighter and more private,” it said in a statement.
