WhatsApp rolling out new "view once" feature for photos and videos

WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to send videos or photos that can only be viewed once before they disappear from a chat.

According to WABetaInfo, the Snapchat-like capability is now available to specific users of version 2.21.14.3 of the WhatsApp Beta for Android.

These users will see a small round icon with a "1" on the right side of the caption box when sending a video or photo, as shown in the image below.

This can be toggled to turn on the "view once" feature.

But you still can't edit messages or properly delete them without that stupid notification. Yay for another lame update.
