WhatsApp examines the original Snapchat tutorial and adds a new option for disappearing photos and videos so that this video automatically disappears after opening, providing an additional privacy option for users.
Wow, right? Snapchat did this for the first time in 2011?
In addition to teasing, the new process offers another communication option within WhatsApp that can be used to share private information such as passwords and the like.
But it will actually be used to ship naked. We all know.
“As with all personal messages you send on WhatsApp, the View once media is protected by end-to-end encryption, so WhatsApp cannot see it. It will also be clearly marked with a new exclusive icon” “.
It has been developing the option for some time, with several examples of tested functionality leaking online. And while Snapchat messages seem to disappear a lot, there’s one important variation: users aren’t notified when someone takes a screenshot or saves content.
WhatsApp has recently come under pressure due to changes in its approach to data privacy and its link with parent company Facebook.
Many users removed the app earlier this year after WhatsApp announced it would soon be sharing more user data with Facebook to improve its business tools. Since then, WhatsApp has tried to provide more clarity about the change in response to the setback (just to make it clear that your personal messages will not be affected), but there seems to be a persistent mistrust of the app and plans for it. share data.
In that sense, content disappearance can be seen as a way to regain public credibility by improving your privacy tools, while providing a more fun and engaging way to share specific updates and increase interaction.
Functionally, it’s not a big revelation; Different messaging apps have long provided similar functionality, but this is another element to consider, the most used messaging app in the world.
