WhatsApp brings changes in Media Visibility
In an article on WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 update, WABetaInfo reported on a feature that prevents media from automatically saving to your phone gallery in disappearing chats. The company is finally releasing the changes to all WhatsApp Android and iOS users in this update.
In the released screenshot you can see that now the platform is automatically turning off the ‘media visibility’ option for disappearing chats on WhatsApp Android which will allow you to view media in your phone’s gallery. This will ensure a better privacy experience while using disappearing messages.
This feature will also reportedly help keep your media more private in disappearing chat threads. Additionally, WhatsApp is also enabling the same changes to WhatsApp iOS users where the “Save to Camera Roll” option is turned off automatically in disappearing chats. The difference is that now images, videos, and GIFs will never get saved automatically in your phone gallery if you have enabled the general settings.
However, some select users using certain Android versions of WhatsApp can save media manually in disappearing chats. WhatsApp iOS users can save Media normally as before. The changes are already enabled for all WhatsApp beta and public builds.
If you do not see the changes for your WhatsApp Accounts they should be activated within 24 hours. For more updates on all upcoming new features and developments keep following us.
