WhatsApp will allow you to adjust the time limit for deleting ephemeral messages with precision
Every day sees a new feature land on WhatsApp. According to WABetaInfo, ephemeral messages will change a lot in the next messaging update.
WhatsApp offers the possibility of sending ephemeral messages. These are automatically deleted after a certain period of time. While this period was initially set at 7 days, Meta has gradually offered new options. Thus, it is currently not possible to set deletion only to 24 hours or even 7 or 90 days. It’s better than nothing, but in front of the insistence of the users of the application, Meta decided to pull out all the stops.

According to WABetaInfo, the very popular messaging system plans to offer no less than 15 new deletion delay options for ephemeral messages. The site does not give any details about the availability of these, but given the rapid pace of WhatsApp updates, we can say that it will appear in a very next update. This improvement comes on top of a flood of new features that are literally inundating users of the world’s most popular instant messenger.
WhatsApp gives more flexibility in the time frame for deleting ephemeral messages
In recent months, the company has implemented such innovative features as single-view messages which, like single-view photos, are deleted immediately after being read by the recipient. The company is pampering WhatsApp users on iPhone, adding text detection to the arsenal of tools already available on iOS 16. It is also rumored that it will soon be possible to record a short video message directly from the application, rather than opening the Camera and sharing the file. It only saves a few clicksbut some heavy users of the app will probably be happy with this interface improvement.
Another ergonomic improvement, but on Android this time: the ability to pin important messages. In addition, Meta is increasingly emphasizing user security and peace of mind by offering to automatically ignore calls from unknown numbers.
