WhatsApp has announced a new feature that allows people to save messages that have disappeared for the first time.
Disappearing messages are exactly what they sound like, messages will automatically expire and cannot be read once done
Now, WhatsApp says it will allow the recipient to request that individual messages not expire, but the sender of that message must always tell them OK first.
Today we’re introducing “Keep in Chat”, so you can hold onto texts you need for later, with a special superpower for the sender. We believe that if you send a message, it’s your choice whether others in the chat can keep it for later.
The new feature is called Keep in Chat and is enabled by long pressing on a message and selecting the option to keep it.
The sender of the message can choose to either allow it to be kept or allow it to expire. Once a message is requested to be put on hold, users cannot request to put that particular message back.
WhatsApp says the new feature is rolling out right away, though it could take a few weeks to find its way into everyone’s accounts. If you don’t see it yet, hang fire – it will get there eventually.
