Mack Zuckerberg’s WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that will make messages disappear after seven days.
The feature, which is already available on encrypted messaging app Signal, is being introduced globally throughout November.
When the feature is turned on, new messages sent within a chat will automatically delete after seven days “helping the conversation feel lighter and more private. The feature can be turned on by either person in a one-to-one chat, and in groups, admins will have control over whether the feature is on or off.

“WhatsApp explained that it was starting with seven days because it think it offers peace of mind that conversations aren’t permanent, while remaining practical so you that the users do not forget what they were chatting about”, SkyNews reported.
