Facebook-owned WhatsApp is now reportedly working on a new feature that will delete photos once the sender leaves the chat.
"WhatsApp is working on self-destructing photos in a future update for iOS and Android," WABetainfo said in a post on Twitter.
The portal said that the messaging app has restricted exporting of "self-destructing photos" from the app — users cannot transfer the images onto another platform like they do with normal photos.
"WhatsApp didn't implement a screenshot detection for self-destructing photos yet. [The] same concept from Instagram Direct," it added.
