WhatsApp is testing the Disappearing Photo as well as Voice Message Playback Speed feature on its platform.
WhatsApp is testing a 24-hour option on its Android, iOS and web / desktop platforms for a feature called Disappearing messages. The instant messaging app already has this option, which gives users the option to set a week (7 days) time for the message to disappear. With this option, WhatsApp is now competing with the Telegram app, which already gives users similar options. Recently, WhatsApp was reportedly spotted testing the feature of changing the playback speed for voice messages on a public beta channel. However, it was removed from subsequent beta updates.
A report by WABetainfo, a website that tests features and publishes information in WhatsApp’s beta programIt is said that WhatsApp is planning to add a 24-hour option in addition to the 7-day option present in the Disappearing Messages feature. The app tests this option on its Android, iOS and Web / Desktop platforms. The screenshot shared by the website shows a 24-hour option in the Disappearing Message feature, where users will be able to choose this option for personal and group chat. Please tell that in this feature, the messages sent by the user are deleted automatically after the completion of the set time. Currently, the dispensing message option offers only 7 days.
WhatsApp previously only gave administrators the option to control dispensing messages. Recently, the company released an update for iOS, which allows all members of a group to change the Disappearing Messages setting by default. WhatsApp is also testing the ability to bring the Disappearing Photos feature to both Android and iOS platforms.
In addition, a report says that WhatsApp has tested the voice message playback speed feature on the public beta channel. It was also enabled for some users on WhatsApp for Android Beta 18.104.22.168, but was removed the next day via the Beta 22.214.171.124 update.
