Instagram and Messenger release self-destructing messages

Instagram is one of the fashionable social networks in Spain, but to stay on the crest of the wave it must continue to improve both in new features and in improvements of existing ones. Instant messaging is one of those areas that, although it doesn't seem very important, is crucial in the user experience.

Instagram recently began receiving direct messaging features from Facebook Messenger, pointing to a future in which messaging for all Facebook apps is unified. Far from staying there, he gradually begins to receive new tools.

Instagram debuts disappearing mode with messages that disappear after reading

Facebook has unveiled a new tool for Instagram messaging. Its name is Vanish Mode, which in Spanish could be literally translated as "disappear mode". And what's supposed to go away?

Well, it would be nothing but the messages. This would be a way that we can turn on or off in conversations, and that would help messages self-destruct as soon as they are read. Its operation would be as follows in four points, according to Facebook itself:

  1. Messages disappear once read: If everyone in the conversation has seen the message, it will disappear the moment you close the chat.
  2. Swipe up to switch mode: You can leave this mode active all the time, or just use it whenever you want.
  3. This model has shared: Vanish Mode is common for all chat users. If someone activates it, it activates for everyone in the conversation and vice versa.
  4. Conversations can be reported: If someone reports the conversation, the missing messages will be included in the report up to 14 days after they have been viewed.
  5. This means that Facebook would save these messages for two weeks for any situation.

This new mode of messages is starting to roll out first for users in the United States and as the weeks go by it should arrive for everyone, so we'll keep you informed as we receive new information.
