WhatsApp, the application owned by Meta, would be working on a new functionality that would allow users save temporary messages that are sent to them in a special section, even if the message has been deleted from the chat after the time set by the person who sent it.

Regarding this, the messaging platform enabled for the first time the use of temporary messages in November 2020, starting with a default period of seven days, after which all the data sent to other contacts under this modality would be eliminated. A year later, the company allowed these times to be set to 24 hours and 90 days.

These so-called temporary messages have been received positively by users of the platform since its launch, Well, once it’s time to review them which has been determined by the sender in all contacts, some or only for a particular group or person, these messages are permanently deleted from the conversation.

However, some of the users of the messaging service do want to keep all their conversation history, even if they are temporary messages, and that is why the developers of Meta are creating a new function that allows you to save this type of message and that in the next few days it will be available for the Beta versions of Android, iOS and Whatsapp Web.

However, WABetaInfo, the portal known for reporting on all the innovations of the application, has reported that in some beta versions of the platform A section has already been incorporated in the configuration that allows you to save the messages that are received as temporary.

Likewise, the news site shared a screenshot in which it can be read that WhatsApp highlights that anyone can save or delete temporary messages that are received and that in the case of groups, it is the administrators who have the power to limit or configure these possibilities.

As for how to access this function, for now it is known that this type of messages can be reviewed from a specific section called “Saved messages” that will be arranged for this purpose within the information section of the chats.

Like most of the information that leaks about the updates of the popular messaging service, it is not yet known when this option will be available to be tested in Beta versions and in a massive way for all users.–voonze.com
