How to Send Disappearing Photos and Videos on Whatsapp

A while back, after a period of BETA testing, WhatsApp released the disappearing messages feature into their latest official version. The feature allows WhatsApp users to send temporary messages that will disappear automatically after some time.

In a previous related article, we discussed the disappearing messages feature on WhatsApp in detail, and how to activate them. Recently, WhatsApp has begun beta testing for disappearing photos and videos. This means that WhatsApp users will be able to send photos and videos that disappear after some time.

The disappearing photos and videos feature is currently only available for BETA testers and will be released to the official WhatsApp version in due course. So how does the new feature work? If you are lucky to have installed the latest WhatsApp BETA version, you can send disappearing photos and videos by doing the following:

  • Launch your WhatsApp app and navigate to the CHATS tab
  • Tap to open a chat that you wish to send the disappearing photo or video
  • Tap the paperclip button in the chatbox section to attach a photo or a video from your gallery or camera
  • On the caption box that appears right before sending the photo, the disappearing message button will appear on the extreme right side of the chatbox. Tap on it.

  • You can now tap the send button to send the photo/video.
  • Once viewed by the recipient, the photo/video will disappear immediately after it is closed.
