After introducing a handful of features, WhatsApp is now adding one more to the list. A new option for Disappearing Messages that will allow the user to delete a particular chat after 90 days is under testing. Although, there is already a similar feature introduced in November last year that vanishes the messages after a week.

The new Disappearing Messages feature is accompanying another option that would allow the user to automatically delete the text after 24 hours. Both of the options are currently under the testing phase.
The features are currently under version 126.96.36.199 for Android beta. Reportedly, the 90 days option will be another alternative for the existing seven days auto-delete messages option. Alongside, from the last few months, WhatsApp is also testing the 24-hour vanish option for Android, iOS, and Web users.
The feature is still under development and is not available even for WhatsApp beta testers. So, don’t get impatient if you are not able to view the feature as it might take some time to go in a stable phase. As of now, we are not sure when the feature will have a stable public rollout.
Back in November 2020, while introducing seven days auto-delete option, WhatsApp said, “We’re starting with 7 days because we think it offers peace of mind that conversations aren’t permanent while remaining practical so you don’t forget what you were chatting about.”
