WhatsApp Introduces New ‘View Once Text’ Feature to Improve User Privacy

WhatsApp new features 2023 updates

WhatsApp, the popular messaging app owned by Facebook, is working on a new feature that will give users more control over the privacy of their messages. According to information obtained by feature tracker WABetaInfo, the latest version of WhatsApp for Android includes a “View Once Text” feature that allows users to send messages that disappear immediately after they are viewed.

The feature works by adding a lock icon next to the chat bar where users type their message before sending. Once the recipient views the message, it will disappear from their device. WhatsApp currently prevents users from taking screenshots of “View Once Text” messages, and it is reported that a future update may go further and ban screenshots entirely when viewing these messages.

WhatsApp has been under scrutiny in recent years for its privacy policies, and this new feature is seen as a step in the right direction for the company. “We are always looking for ways to improve the user experience and enhance privacy on our platform,” a WhatsApp spokesperson said in a statement. “The ‘View Once Text’ feature is just one of many ways we are working to give our users more control over their messaging experience.”

This feature is similar to the existing “View Once” feature that is already available for images and videos. Additionally, WhatsApp has also recently rolled out a new feature called “Message Yourself” that allows users to send messages to themselves for safekeeping.

WhatsApp has not yet announced when this feature will be released for all users, but it is expected to be available in the coming months.
