Facebook Adds Vanish Mode For Instagram, Messenger
Facebook is adding a new vanish mode to their Instagram and Messenger. This feature is similar to the one seen on Snapchat.
Highlights of the Story
- The new Vanish Mode deletes a message from Instagram and Messenger
- Message gets deleted when the message is seen and the user has exited the chat window
- Vanish mode is now available on Messenger in the US and selective regions
Messenger and Instagram are all set to get a new feature called the “Vanish Mode”. Moreover, this feature is similar to what we have seen on Snapchat. The feature allows users to get a message automatically deleted after they have read it and have exited the chat window. Going by the messenger news blog post, “Sometimes a message is just spontaneous – something you want to say in the moment without worrying about it sticking around. That’s why we’re excited to introduce vanish mode on Messenger, which lets you send messages that disappear automatically. How it works is simple—messages disappear after they’re seen and you leave the chat”.
Users can enable the feature by simply swiping up on the smartphone in an existing chat thread. This allows the users to make use of the feature and get in the vanish mode.
Additionally, the blogpost refers to this feature as “Safety by design”. Moreover, only those people a user is connected to can use vanish mode in the chat. Users can also choose whether to enter vanish mode with someone or not. Additionally, you need to think twice before sneak taking a quick screenshot of your chat. This is because, just like in Snapchat, the other person will get notified as well. Besides, users can also block someone and report a conversation if they feel unsafe at any point.
