Now it seems that WhatsApp can be going so as to add an alternative choice for message expiry, and that is 90 days. So every time all of those options make it out of beta, you will be introduced with a menu much like the one you possibly can see within the screenshot under, the place you can decide between “Off” (so messages by no means disappear), or select to have your chats disappear after 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days.
That is quite a lot of flexibility, however the “90 days” choice has solely now made it to the WhatsApp Android beta (noticed within the newest model, 220.127.116.11). WhatsApp generally retains upcoming options within the beta realm for a lot of weeks (and even months) earlier than lastly releasing them to all of its customers, so we do not but know when it’s best to anticipate this to reach for everybody.
