WhatsApp for iOS prepares the feature of disappearing messages and redesigned chat bubbles
WhatsApp for iOS has just released the update to version 220.127.116.11 for beta users. With this, users will not only see the redesigned chat bubble overhaul, but even more how the Missing Messages feature works.
According to always reliable WABetaInfo, this new beta is being rolled out for public testers and brings some exciting new changes to WhatsApp. For example, we’ve already covered the new colors for the redesigned chat bubbles. Now, WABetaInfo gives us a closer look at this.
By comparing the old chat bubble with the new one, you see rounded, larger, and more colorful chat bubbles. The post also shares the exact color of the old and new chat bubbles:
- Old light bubble color: # E1F6CA
- New light bubble color: # E2FDD5
- Old dark bubble color: # 295F60
- New dark bubble color: # 204F46
Not only that, but WhatsApp also deploys useful tools to deal with messages that go missing. According to WABetaInfo, the application now allows you to choose between different durations: 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days.
Here’s how WhatsApp describes how this feature works:
Make this chat’s messages disappear
For more privacy and storage, all new messages will disappear from this chat for everyone after the selected duration. Anyone participating in the chat can change this setting.
It will also be possible to activate “Default message timer” in the privacy settings of WhatsApp. With this, all new chats will start with the option to disappear messages enabled for the selected duration as indicated by WABetaInfo.
All of these features are currently in beta, but WhatsApp probably won’t take long to roll them out to all users. Another thing that users very much want the app to launch is support for multiple devices as well as the ability to migrate chat from iOS to Android and vice versa.
