In the recent past, WhatsApp has received a slew of new features. The company may not be as far ahead in terms of features as its competitors, such as Telegram, but it is working hard to meet the needs. Reportedly, a new WhatsApp feature is in the works, that would allow users to keep the disappearing messages.

The Meta-owned instant messaging platform will call this feature ‘Kept Messages.’ WhatsApp users can use this feature to save disappearing messages and keep them as is, i.e., for everyone to see. This will work even if the message has expired. However, there will be a visual tweak to such messages to differentiate them from the other regular chats.

To clarify, disappearing messages are those that a user can send in a group or one-on-one chat that automatically expires or vanish after a time limit from all connected devices. WABetaInfo spotted this new WhatsApp feature, ‘Kept Messages,’ that will give users more control over disappearing messages. The kept messages won’t disappear from the chat and will continue to be visible to all users. Users, though, will have the option to un-keep them at any time. Once they opt for this, the message will be deleted for everyone.

Messages that are saved, will have their own bookmark icon to separate them from other chats. Hold your horses, though, as this new WhatsApp’s Kept Messages feature is still under development, and the feature’s availability is not known at the moment. The feature isn’t widely available to beta testers.
