WhatsApp has just introduced a new feature called View Once for voice messages, which allows users to send voice messages that disappear once they have been listened to, Report informs referring to India Today.
In a blog post, WhatsApp announced the new feature, saying that it is similar to the View Once feature that was introduced for photos and videos in 2021.
The disappearing voice notes feature is designed to add an extra layer of privacy to messages.
"For reading out your credit card details to a friend, or when you’re planning a surprise, you can now also share sensitive information over voice message with added peace of mind. For consistency with View Once photos and videos, View Once voice messages are clearly marked with the “one-time” icon and can only be played one time," the company noted.
"To send a disappearing voice message, you need to simply record your message as usual and then tap the new one-time icon before sending. The recipient will only be able to listen to the message once, and it will then disappear from their chat history.
