By configuring the messages to be temporary, after the time limit expires, the messages will be deleted forever, from all devices where the app was used, without being able to recover them, the company says.
When the temporary messages option is enabled by default, a warning will be displayed in conversations to let contacts know that the new setting is active.

The new version can now be used by the latest version of WhatsApp.
