WhatsApp disables the media visibility’ option for vanished chats.



WhatsApp disables the media visibility

“Media visibility” was an option on WhatsApp for Android that let people see media in their phone’s gallery when a chat was deleted.

Meta-owned WhatsApp is likely now automatically turning this option off for deleted chats. By making disappearing messages and chat threads more private, WA BetaInfo says that the new move will make it easier to keep media confidential in disappearing conversations.

For iOS users, the same thing is happening. When a chat disappears, the option “Save to Camera Roll” is automatically turned off, so you can’t save it.

The general setting doesn’t save images, videos, or GIFs to a user’s camera roll if this setting is turned on.

When a conversation ends, users can still save media by hand. Some people who use specific versions of Android already can save media on their own, the report said.

On WhatsApp for iOS, users can save media the way they usually do, just like they typically do.

All users on beta and public builds are getting the changes. Full activation for everyone could happen in the next 24 hours, but it’s uncertain.
