In an upcoming update, Facebook-owned instant messaging service WhatsApp could add a feature which automatically destroys images once viewed, or after a predefined time. The new feature will add to disappearing messages introduced in November 2020. This is nothing new, as many competing platforms such as Signal already support disappearing media. The release timeline for this feature is unknown.
