Mark Zuckerberg confirms developers are working on a feature to keep chat more private, disappearing mode and “View Once”
The meta-owned messaging platform, WhatsApp is launching three “important features”, WABetainfo reported after social media giant Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp’s CEO Will Cathcart confirmed the development.
Sharing screenshots of the chat, the WhatsApp news tracker reported that the developers are working on a feature to keep chat and messages more private as they believe that the most important interaction people have is around private messaging.
WABetainfo further added that the American media magnate confirmed that ‘View Once’ will be rolled out soon, so the recipient can only open photos and videos once before they disappear from the chat.
“Will Cathcart confirmed that multi-device will be rolled out in a public beta within two months,” the platform reported, adding that:
- WhatsApp on iPad might be supported after a multi-device is rolled out
- It will consider opening the beta up to some more iOS users soon
- Users will be connected up to four linked devices using the multi-device
