Just like its yellow competitor, the concept is to send an image that, once opened by the recipient, automatically disappears from the conversation without the possibility of reviewing it again. Until then, this feature was reserved for photos and other videos, but that’s about to change.

Single View Messages will soon be available on WhatsApp
