Facebook has started rolling out its vanishing mode feature on Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.
Vanish Mode allows you send texts, photos, voice messages, emoji and stickers that disappear immediately they’re viewed by other parties and the chat window is closed.
On Instagram, some elements of Vanish Mode include disappearing photos and videos once a piece of media has been viewed. And on WhatsApp, the feature allows users to send messages that disappear after a predetermined amount of time – this will also include media, like images and videos.
Once activated, this feature won’t affect messages sent prior to the roll-out and users can turn disappearing messages on and off at any time in any individual chat. In a group chat, however, only group admins can turn disappearing messages on and off.
