WhatsApp is going to extend its disappearing messages feature to all members of a WhatsApp group. A feature introduced in last years that automatically removes seven days old WhatsApp messages from individual chats will be now available for group chats as well and not just admins and not just for admins but for members of the WhatsApp group as well.
According to the WaBetaInfo report, the feature will be soon available for every WhatsApp Group. The feature was spotted in Android version 188.8.131.52 devices using the instant messaging app. However, admins reserve the right to disable the possibility of a member toggle disappearing messages from a group.
