Self-destructing images coming to WhatsApp in the near future
Based on a statement by @WABetaInfo on their Twitter account, it seems that the developers of WhatsApp could be working on giving users the ability to send an image that deletes itself after a few seconds. While not much is known in regards to when it will be available globally, it does give us a better idea of what to expect from WhatsApp in the near future.
If you look closely at the images, you’ll see that there’s a number at the button likely referring to the number of seconds before the picture deletes itself. However, do take every bit of information with a grain of salt, due to the fact that the developers of WhatsApp have yet to provide an official statement on the leak.
