WhatsApp is a cross-platform instant messaging and voice calling application for mobile phones. In addition to sending text messages, the platform allows users to send photos, videos, and documents in PDF format, and free calls can be made by connecting to the Internet.
The platform is always looking for new updates to improve user experience and now has a new self-destruct tool.
Check out how the new WhatsApp functionality works below!
WhatsApp has a new tool
WhatsApp is one of the most used apps in the world, especially by Brazilians. In November 2020, platform users using the app on Android devices can activate the “self-destruct” message feature.
With this feature, the user can choose between 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days for messages to be deleted automatically, as well as media and audio. However, recently iOS users have also started using the feature on a temporary basis.
Hence, the tool comes on a gradual scale for all users. As of now, the new version can be found in WhatsApp App Version Beta 126.96.36.199 (iOS). The tool can be enabled in Storage Manager.
The self-destructing message function was developed to increase security and also help save cell phone memory. As mentioned earlier, files and text messages are automatically deleted.
With the new tool, you will not have to spend hours deleting messages, photos and videos in your gallery. Previously, this tool could be enabled in the Privacy section under Settings. However, the new button made the new method more visible.

What’s new in the latest WhatsApp updates?
WhatsApp has more than 2 billion users on its instant messaging platform, so the company is always looking to update the platform to introduce new features that help improve the user experience.
In this way, since last year until now, the platform has brought some new features to its users. One of them was the option to silently leave WhatsApp groups i.e. not notify people that you are leaving.
In addition, the latest updates also feature new emoji and avatars, block prints in single-view photos and videos, and calls with up to 32 participants, among others.
The app is still available for most of the different programs. So, WhatsApp is found for the following operating systems:
- Black Berry;
- You are
- internal control Department ;
- Windows Phone;
And with that, the app that was created in 2009 by two Yahoo veterans, Brian Acton and Jan Koum, is now available for worldwide use. It is also worth noting that today the platform is owned by Meta, which is responsible for Facebook.
