WhatsApp Update: Good news has come about the eagerly awaited new feature of WhatsApp. Here we are talking about the disappearing feature for the group. Whatsapp launched ‘disappearing messages’ feature in November last year. Earlier, where this feature was only for single chat, and was for group admin, now members of WhatsApp group are also going to get control of disappearing messages. WABetaInfo has reported about this feature.
According to the report of WABetaInfo, after the rollout of the new feature, the admin of a WhatsApp group along with its members will also be able to use the disappearing message feature. But according to the report, at present this service is limited only to the group administrator. That is, if you are also the admin of a WhatsApp group, then under the new feature, you can also enable this feature for the members of the group so that the members can also use the disappearing feature.
