WhatsApp working on ‘view once text’ feature- According to WABetaInfo, the functionality, which allows users to send messages that can only viewed once before disappearing, is currently present in WhatsApp’s Android beta version.
According to reports, a future upgrade of the app will allow users to send “view once text” messages. WhatsApp is owned by Meta.
When the function first debuted, it supported both photographs and videos.
According to WABetaInfo, the functionality, which allows users to send messages that can only viewed once before disappearing, is currently present in WhatsApp’s Android beta version.
According to the source, the app may eventually have a padlock-shaped button with the classic send message logo to access the feature.
Users will no longer need to manually remove information transmitted without consent from the recipient’s phone thanks to this functionality, which will do it for them.
The same cannot be done with view-only text messages, just as it is not feasible to forward or copy view-only photos and videos.
If they are running the most current version of the app, WhatsApp now stops recipients from screenshotting a piece of view-once material; however, it is unknown whether this security will be extended to text messages, according to the article.
The messaging service also launched a brand-new disappearing messages shortcut for Android beta earlier this month.
