WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature that would let users keep messages from disappearing messages for beta iOS users. At present only some lucky beta testers will be able to test this feature. According to the report of WABetaInfo, this update will be available to users who install the latest version of the iOS beta.
As you must be knowing that this feature allows you to prevent specific messages from disappearing. Earlier this feature was released to a few beta users but most of them were unable to use the feature. In this current beta update, some users will finally be able to test this feature.
WhatsApp rolling out a new feature to keep messages
In a previous update, the meta-owned platform had announced the ability to keep messages from disappearing on beta iOS. This feature is very useful to users for retaining important messages. After this update, although the section to keep messages within chat info was visible the action was missing.
So many users were not able to keep messages from disappearing. With this latest update, the ability to keep messages from disappearing is finally available to users. The leading WhatsApp news source has also shared a screenshot of the feature.
In the image, you can see the interface of keep messages. If you want to keep any message you just have to press and hold it. You will get the menu with all available options. From here select the ‘keep’ action and the message won’t get disappeared.
However, if you want to make it disappear again, then just select the ‘Unkeep’ action and the message will automatically vanish. Notably, people can still control their disappearing messages so if the message has already been unkept you cannot keep it anymore.
The ability to keep messages from disappearing gives you more control over your conversations. As mentioned earlier this feature has been currently released only to certain beta testers who install the latest version of WhatsApp beta for iOS. The company will be rolling it out to more people in a future update. Some users may also get the same feature in a few previous updates.
