Unique feature can be added to WhatsApp soon, media files will be automatically deleted

WhatsApp is currently working on a new feature called Expiring Media, under this feature, media files such as photos, videos and GIFs will automatically disappear from the chat after a view as soon as users leave the chat. It is believed that this latest feature is an extension of the Expiring Messages feature, which the instant messaging company has been working on for some time. With expiry media, WhatsApp users will be able to temporarily send photo videos to other users.

WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo has shared some screenshots, in which the use of this feature can be seen. It can be seen in a screenshot that this feature will be available for access via a dedicated timer button. Users have to tap on that button after adding media files to their chat. According to other screenshots, Select Media will enable content expiration.

According to the report by WABetaInfo, the video and picture will disappear completely as soon as the user leaves the chat window of the expiring media feature enabled photos and videos. Not only this, in addition, WhatsApp has also introduced a timer icon for media files sent through this feature, so that the users receiving the file know that the file sent is for a limited time as soon as it leaves the chat. Will disappear.

WABetaInfo noted that this new feature has been developed for Android users at an early stage, although it will be offered to both Android and iPhone users.


Let me tell you, WhatsApp’s expiring media feature is very much like Instagram, in which the photos and videos sent by users in direct messages disappear automatically. Instagram also allows its users to make media files disappear in group messages.

Last month, Zari WhatsApp beta version for Android saw signs of expiry message feature. As soon as this feature is enabled, the 7-day old chat will disappear automatically. The screenshot shared in the reference of this feature also indicated that not only chats but media files will also disappear with chat using the expiry message feature. However, some photos and videos can be saved before expiring.

It is worth noting that WhatsApp has neither made public any information about the expiring message nor disclosed anything about the expiring media. At the moment, it is also not clear how long these new features will be delivered to the users.
