Instagram users can now send disappearing messages, photos, videos, and more using Vanish mode. These are the steps you need to follow.
Do you want to send disappearing messages, photos, videos and more in Instagram chat? You can use Instagram disappear mode for the same. Vanish mode allows people to send each other disappearing messages, photos, videos, and other content in Instagram chats. “Content sent in disappearing mode disappears when someone leaves the chat or disables disappearing mode,” Instagram said. Also, to use the disappearing mode, you will need to update the Messenger features in the app.
Once you enable disappearing mode, you will not be able to copy, save, or forward messages that disappear. Also, here are some of the other effects of enabling disappear mode: Accounts you haven’t connected with before can’t send you disappearing mode message requests. You can only use disappear mode in a chat with another Instagram account. You will not be able to use it in a group chat or in a chat with a Messenger or Facebook account.
It is recommended to use disappearing mode with people you trust, as it is possible for someone to take a screenshot or screen recording of a disappearing mode message before it disappears. However, you will be alerted to the same via a notification. People can also take a photo of a disappearing message with a camera or other device before it disappears.
