The App Store now has a new WhatsApp update, bringing the version to 2.21.240.
What’s new in this version of the game? The default message timing has been updated, as well as new selectable durations for vanishing messages.
WhatsApp stated yesterday that new functionality related to vanishing messages is now being rolled out to users of stable WhatsApp upgrades. WhatsApp has released a suitable update on the App Store today!
What is the default timer for messages? It’s a brand-new feature that lets you create new chat threads with disappearing messages enabled by default. Within WhatsApp’s Privacy Settings, you can toggle this option on or off.
|Name of the feature?||Default Message Timer|
|Compatibility?||WhatsApp for iOS 2.21.240 from the App Store is marked as a compatible update.|
|Previous news?||WhatsApp may automatically log your linked devices out|
Furthermore, when you activate disappearing messages in your chats, WhatsApp is offering two new durations: 90 days and 24 hours. Both capabilities were previously available only to iOS and Android beta testers, but WhatsApp is now making them available to all users, including WhatsApp Business.
If the 2.21.240 update isn’t available on the App Store right now, it should be available in a few minutes.
