WhatsApp: How to send self-destructing photos and videos

Hello friends, a new WhatsApp feature is now available for most users. It is a feature that will allow you to send photos and videos that can be viewed only once and then self-destruct. Months ago it was leaked that WhatsApp would be adding this new feature, then during the month of June we could see it in the beta version of WhatsApp. Now it is a reality and is already available in the global version. This new feature promises to give users more control over privacy. According to what Facebook has explained this new feature would be coming to all users of the different platforms in the following weeks. If you do not have it you just have to wait a little. That’s why in this post we will show you how to send photos and videos that self-destruct on WhatsApp.
