As you can see below, messages are sent in vanishing mode as soon as the user exits the chat, much like Snapchat’s implementation of short-term messages. An animation occurs when the user enters mode.

In missing mode, the text explaining the feature reads “messages will disappear once they appear”, which is how the feature works on Snapchat as well.

Also, since this is supposed to be a more private conversation window, where people will clearly have conversations that they feel should not be part of regular chat history, it would not be surprising if the company was originally given a screenshot Disables capture capability or at least notifies users if the person on the other end is capturing screenshots in while in disappearing mode.

When the feature was spotted this March, Instagram confirmed its existence, saying, “We’re always looking for new features to improve your messaging experience. This feature is still in the initial development and is not testing externally yet! ”, In a tweet.

Now that the interface looks more sophisticated, we can expect Instagram to announce it in the coming weeks or months. Even with the feature, it is unlikely that existing Snapchat users will go completely to Instagram. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
