The WhatsApp iOS 2.21.71 update has just come for iOS users, in which you will be able to access two major features. The first of which is “Large Image Preview” and the second one is “Disappearing Messages”.
What is WhatsApp iOS 2.21.71 Update?
As we mentioned earlier, this update is primarily for preview images and disappearing messages. These features improve media preview and also allow all group members to replace disappearing messages.
The reason for bringing this update of WhatsApp is to avoid server congestion and all Apple users will get this update in the coming week.
After the update, when you update WhatsApp on your iOS, you will be able to see a bigger image and video preview than before. You will be able to see a preview of images and videos quickly and you will not have to open the media for this.
In earlier iOS versions of WhatsApp, the control of disappearing messages was held by the group admin. By the way, even after WhatsApp iOS 2.21.71 update, only the admin can control the settings of all additional disappearing messages.
What are disappearing messages?
Disappeared messages are those messages which disappear on their own after seven days in the chatbox of WhatsApp.
If you had shared any media such as a photo or video between the conversion along with chat, then after seven days, that too will disappear. So, make sure before enabling this setting.
