WhatsApp can now save disappearing messages but if only the sender consents to it. Long pressing on disappearing WhatsApp messages will allow users to save them, but only if the sender approves of it.
WhatsApp Disappearing Messages
Users will now have to consider before sending a risky text on WhatsApp right now as disappearing messages are now a bit more optional. CEO, Mark Zuckerberg is now announcing a new tweak to the burn-after-reading feature of the service which will allow the receiver of a message to long press on it and then select to keep it.
How WhatsApp Describes the New Feature
The new adjustment by WhatsApp is described as a “sender superpower,” and assuming that the feature works as originally designed, it still gets to keep the sender in control of what gets to happen to the message ultimately. And this is because the sender is sent a notification when a message is trying to be saved by a receiver, and then the sender can be able to choose if the message will disappear or b saved.
According to a blog post by the company, this gives senders on the platform ability to “veto” an attempt by the recipient to save a message. If you’ve decided your message can’t be kept by others, your decision is final, no one else can keep it, and the message will be deleted when the timer expires.”
How the Feature Works
If you however decide to save a received message and the sender on the other end is good with it, then it will have a bookmark icon on it, and then you will be able to see them in your kept messages folder.
