From next month, the messages you sent on WhatsApp will be deleted by yourself, 7 days after sending in a certain “chat”.
Facebook-owned messaging service said that this new for the app comes to make the conversation “more private”.
Thus, WhatsApp will be a bit more like Snapchat, the platform from which Facebook has been inspired in the past, including the introduction of “Instagram Stories”.
The company confirmed that the new one can be activated by the users, while in groups it will be the “admin” who has in hand the activation or not of the innovation.
“We think people will be calmer if they know that something they once wrote will no longer be there,” said a Whatsapp spokesman.
