WhatsApp is working on a tool to save messages that ‘disappear’

WhatsApp proposes that some temporary messages can be saved so that they can be accessed later.


WhatsApp is working on a new update that will allow people to keep messages that should disappear in the app.

According to WaBetaInfo , this somewhat confusing tool is under development and is expected to hit the beta of the service soon.

What is this WhatsApp function?

In the past, reports have surfaced that WhatsApp is working on a feature that allows users to save disappearing messages under the name “saved messages.”

In general, messages that disappear are automatically deleted after they expire before activating this function. However, with these new dynamics, users will be able to save messages and prevent them from expiring.

Of course, it is also possible to modify it to allow the texts to be deleted later.

Users will receive an alert when it is no longer possible to continue disappearing messages. Once the author of a message disappears from the saved messages, the other members of the conversation will not be able to read the message again.

This feature will be different from starred messages, but will also have its own icon in chat.


The tool is expected to roll out in beta versions of the app, but it will take a long time to reach general users.

Let’s remember that, like any function under test, it is also possible that it will be canceled and not see the light.
