As per reports, this feature will be made available to all participants of the WhatsApp group. The disappearing messages feature was first seen in the Android version 18.104.22.168 devices leveraging the instant messaging app. The admins still have the right to disable the feature of disappearing messages from a group chat.
Recently it was cited via a screengrab of “Edit group info” that it is possible to update the feature to showcase recent modifications. The settings now show that the disappearing messages feature is available “All participant’ as well as “Only admins’.
Another anticipated feature of minimising the time for disappearing messages from 7 days to 24 hours is also under process. WhatsApp has already released the beta version 22.214.171.124 for Android users that enables them to view a mention badge whenever they get a message from a particular group with its Mention Badge feature.
