Previous news? WhatsApp is releasing a message yourself feature on Windows beta!

In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android update, we shared some information about a new feature released to some beta testers: a new presentation sheet. By using the presentation sheet, WhatsApp wants to inform users that the recipient can’t take a screenshot of view once images and videos, and it is not even possible to share, forward, copy, and save them.
After releasing the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update on the Play Store, we discovered something else about view once: WhatsApp is working on bringing the ability to send view once text messages to a future update!

As you can see in this screenshot, there is a new special button placed next to the chat bar. If you look at the send button carefully, you can notice there is a lock symbol within the button: it means you’re sending a view once text. But what’s a view once text? As you can imagine, the view once text will disappear from the conversation when the recipient opens it so it is not possible to read the view once text again. Note that, since this feature is under development, the layout of the view once text bubble and the send button may change before the release.

This is very useful when you share very important information and you want to immediately delete them from the recipient’s phone for added privacy so you don’t even need to delete the view once text for everyone since it will be automatically deleted. As happens with view once images and videos, it is not possible to forward and copy view once text messages. About screenshots, they should also be blocked but we will give you a confirmation when a future update is out.

The ability to send view once text messages will be released in a future update of WhatsApp beta for Android. As always, an article will be available on this website when this feature is available and you can get a notification by joining our community on WhatsApp.
