WhatsApp Testing ‘Delete Messages’ Feature for Individual Chats
In a recent update, WhatsApp Beta has started testing a feature called ‘Delete messages‘ that was introduced as a part of its rumored cleaning tools for deleting messages in Groups. Now, in WhatsApp Beta v2.20.83/v2.20.84, they’re reportedly testing the disappearing messages feature for private chats too.
The feature has come under many names, the newest being ‘Delete messages’. The feature was exclusively meant for Group chats, but now it looks like WhatsApp is testing the feature for individual chats too with update 2.20.83/2.20.84.
The feature works almost like the group chats, except rather than the feature being enabled by the group administrator, it’ll be available during a person’s profile menu. Clicking the ‘Delete Messages’ option will mention a window from which the user can choose the time at which the messages will get deleted. Once an option is chosen, a touch watch icon will appear next to the message sent time on each chat bubble, indicating that the message is going to be deleted afterward.
The feature is currently unavailable for stable users and can also be enabled for everybody soon. you’ll become a tester for Whatsapp Beta for Android here and for iOS here, but the Delete Messages feature isn’t available yet and it’d be introduced for the beat future beta version.
