Whatsapp is now developing a feature that will make users shriek with excitement; the new WhatsApp View Once feature allows users to dispatch a text message that may not be viewed more than once; if you had surmised it before we lit up the candle, you probably have been using Snapchat for a while.

The WhatsApp view once message can’t be copied through a long press on the text or forwarded to someone. Astonishingly, when you advance to take a screenshot of it, you will be notified with a message “Cannot take screenshot ” the new feature of WhatsApp is connected to Snapchat, where you can make the text vanish as soon as the receiver reads.

According to WABetaInfo, the part had been found in WhatsApp beta v2.22.25.20 for Android. WABetaInfo has also shared a picture alongside the update; a view once option exists for sharing videos and photos; now, it is also arriving for text. Promise can’t be made; it has been created.

WhatsApp View Once Message Features

If the view-once features for a text message are switched on, the default send button will revamp its functionality to one that is crowned with a lock symbol in it. The view-once messages can make a lot of noise across the platform as people can’t take a duplicate of the text forward or take a screenshot of them. This may take you to a serene location where a more sensitive reader cannot be transported across the shore to an island. But, if you’re smart enough to act friendly, you can take a photo of it from another phone, but would you do that?

The view-once feature may hit your device in the forthcoming months.
