Sources say that some new features will be added to WhatsApp’s iOS app, including the ability to send photos and videos with a one-time viewing setting.

According to a report by Wapetalnov, WhatsApp will soon introduce the “View once” feature to iOS beta versions, according to the website 24.

With the new “View once” feature, users will be able to send disappearing photos and videos just like in Snapchat .

These photos and videos will not store themselves locally in the receiver’s device, but will be destroyed once viewed once.

However, while Snapchat will alert you when someone takes a screenshot of your one-time-view photos, WhatsApp will not implement any such mechanism.

Thus, it will not be as secure as Snapchat, in terms of avoiding screenshots, at least for the time being.

The new, redesigned notification menu within the app will allow users to see more details in the notification banner such as photos, videos, and GIFs.

The user can now expand the in-app notification to show a preview of the chat, which will not be static and will enable the user to swipe up and down the view to see older and newer messages, the Indian Express reported
