One of the biggest drawbacks of delete for everyone feature of WhatsApp is that it leaves a message that you have deleted it from the receiver’s end. However, in future, we might be able to send messages that will self-destruct.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is testing a feature which will enable users to set a desired time limit and send disappearing messages. The messages will disappear as per the preset time without leaving any traces behind.
Soon users will be able to verify the forwarded messages.
With a rapid increase in the number of fake news that is being spread on WhatsApp, the service is looking for a solution. As per WABetaInfo, the company is working on a feature that will let users verify the authenticity of the forwarded information.
After enabling the feature, users will see a search icon right next to the forwarded message. By clicking on the search icon, WhatsApp will make a Google search to check if the message is authentic or not.
