So you can see self-destructing photos on WhatsApp again
For several months, WhatsApp has been working on a new function that will allow users to send self-destructing media files or they disappear once the recipient views the content.
This update is already being tested in the beta version for the Android operating system and seeks to offer a tool to users who want to send private videos or images, which do not want them to be saved on the device of the person to whom you are sending the message.

This disappearing messages function, very similar to the one that Instagram already has, will be available for both individual chats and group conversations.
Although this option is not yet enabled for all users, several Internet users have revealed a tactic that will allow you to view the images shared with this update multiple times, without the need for the issuer to know.

For this, the person must enter their account from the version of WhatsApp Web and keep the session open. Subsequently, the user must go to his mobile phone and activate airplane mode option.
With these steps ready, the user can now open any image that has been shared and even download it.
By updating self-destructing messages, users will also be able to view a secret emoji. The image is that of the face with a finger over the mouth, which have a connotation of silence or secrecy.

In order to view the icon, the user who submitted the content must press five times the message you shared, which will include the number 1, circled.
Once this step is done, the person will be able to quickly see the emoji. It is important to clarify that it is the sender and not the recipient of the message who can view the graph.
