Instagram is working on a disappearing text-messaging feature which will clear all chat once you leave your chat page
This was confirmed by a Facebook spokesperson who said the company is developing the feature.
The company has been testing the feature for a long time now. This is not the first feature the company has launched, it rolled out a feature that lets you control how a recipient can view a photo or a video from the Instagram Direct camera in 2018.
App researcher Jane Manchun Wong discovered the capability hidden in the Android app’s code, and if it comes just the way Wong described, you will definitely find yourself in a dark mode messaging window when you start an Instagram Direct conversation. Immediately you exit the page, the messages disappear and there is no way to reread the message typed before.
The company speaking on the new development said, “We’re always exploring new features to improve your messaging experience. This feature is still in early development and not testing externally just yet!”
