According to reports, WhatsApp Web has begun to receive updates, allowing users to send photos and videos that can only be viewed once. This new feature called “View Once” was originally discovered on the recent Android beta version of WhatsApp. This feature has not yet been launched for all mobile users, but it is now apparently also being tested on WhatsApp Web. In November last year, Facebook-owned platforms introduced the disappearing message feature, allowing users to engage in conversations that are not permanent in nature and disappear after 7 days. However, unlike some other popular applications, WhatsApp does not allow users to set the available time for messages, so the available time for messages is one week.

WABetaInfo reported the launch of WhatsApp Web version 2.2126.11, which allows users to disappear from chats after viewing photos and videos. It is said that users will see a “view once” button when sharing media content through the web client-if the feature is already available for their WhatsApp account.

Last month, it was discovered that WhatsApp is testing WhatsApp’s “see once” feature for Android users. WABetaInfo reported at the time that it had been launched to beta testers of Android 2.21.14.3 via WhatsApp.

WhatsApp will make it easier for users to temporarily share sensitive photos and videos through its platform by providing a new disappearing feature. However, the recipient can still choose to store the media content on their device by capturing a screenshot.

The updated WhatsApp Web version is said to have a new archive function, and the instant messaging application will no longer notify users about messages entering the archive thread.

WhatsApp may not initially provide its new features to all users. However, WABetaInfo stated that WhatsApp is increasing its access to more people. At the time of writing, Advertisement Shout was unable to detect WhatsApp Web updates.

In addition to two new features for WhatsApp web users, WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed last month that the app is developing a disappearing mode that allows you to disappear in chats and groups Messages shared in. The two executives also confirmed the launch of the “see once” feature and suggested testing multi-device support in the next few days.
