WhatsApp testing saves automatic media removal in invisible chats

WhatsApp is changing the way it handles media like photos, GIFs and videos when they are received by someone via a chat so that the disappearing message is active.

Changes, by which the first is reported WABetaInfoThis means that received media will no longer be stored on iPhones or Android devices when disappearing messages are enabled.

Although media can still be saved manually, the default is that nothing will be saved – a change that is understood in a chat thread so that disappearing messages are also enabled.

As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is now automatically turning off the “Media Visibility” option to allow chats to disappear in WhatsApp for Android, allowing people to view media in their phone’s gallery. This is to ensure a better privacy experience when using disappearing messages and to help keep media more private in disappearing chat threads. Additionally, WhatsApp is making a similar change to WhatsApp for iOS, where the “Save Camera Roll” option automatically stops chat disappearing.
