WhatsApp has rolled out two major features for iPhone users. With the latest update, iOS users will be able to see larger media previews and get more control over the disappearing messages to feature in groups.
The new WhatsApp for iOS version 2.21.71 brings two new changes for all iOS users on the stable version of the app. The first change makes it easier for users to be able to see photos and videos easily without opening them. The photos and video previews will be much bigger than the small square preview that is seen currently.
The update has improved the display of sent media so you can see larger image and video previews. Furthermore, WhatsApp earlier used to only let admins control Disappearing Messages, but now with this update, all participants in a group can change the Disappearing Messages setting by default.
The feature is yet to make its debut in the Android version of WhatsApp. The company is soon expected to release it for Android users too. The image or video that your receive or share on the messaging app will not appear inside a small square box, you can view the media in its original size. This feature is only exclusive to iOS users for now.
The new Disappearing Messages feature is already available on the Android version of the messaging app. In case you are unaware, the Disappearing Messages feature deletes messages in an individual or group chat after seven days. But, you will first have to enable the feature to use it. It is important to note that enabling this option won’t affect messages you previously sent to any chat.
To enable the disappearing messages to feature you need to head into the contact details of a specific contact or the group info section and then tap the disappearing messages option. This will then open a new window, from where you can enable the feature.
