People shared memes and jokes after WhatsApp launched the disappearing messages feature. If the feature is enabled, messages sent in individual and group chats will disappear after seven days.
“Our goal is to make conversations on WhatsApp feel as close to in-person as possible, which means they shouldn’t have to stick around forever. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the option to use disappearing messages on WhatsApp,” the Facebook-owned company said in a blog post.
Here’s how people reacted to the latest feature that has been available on other instant messaging apps and was popularised by Snapchat:
