Cross-platform messaging and voice-based communication app Viber has recently announced the rollout of disappearing message options for group chats within the Viber app, a feature that was previously available only for one-on-one chats.
“Using this feature, members can easily toggle the feature on and off within the chat itself,” said a release on Saturday.
It also said that when it comes to the setting of disappearing messages in a group chat, users will not need to go through a multi-step process to change the status for messages in the group.
With the expanded functionality, Viber users can set messages in a group chat to disappear 10 seconds, one minute, one hour, or one day after being read, they added.
“Once the disappearing option is activated, the users using Android 6 or newer on devices will get notifications if someone forwards, copies, or takes a screenshot of a message.”
Viber also mentioned that personal and group chats on Viber will remain end-to-end encrypted to ensure communications are always private and secure.
The disappearing message feature showsViber’s commitment to offering a secure messaging app for users.
