The auto-delete message feature, which was available to users making use of Secret Chats, will be available for normal chats. It will be also applicable to groups and channels. Users can auto-delete messages based on a timer that ranges from 24 hours to 7 days. A countdown timer can be spotted alongside the message that is to be deleted. One thing to note is that only Admins will be able to modify the timer in group chats.
