WhatsApp Read Later feature begins testing: What it is?

Recently, WhatsApp introduced the much awaited "Disappearing Messages" feature. This feature is now available for all WhatsApp users on Android, iOS and web as well. The other option will include "Edit Archive Settings, to change how archived chats work." iOS users will also be given an option to disable the Vacation mode included in "Read Later".

If you want the messages to disappear momentarily after you send them, you should stick with Snapchat or Telegram. Previously, the Facebook-owned messaging platform was spotted testing an in-app support feature. Otherwise, here are the steps you need to follow to turn on or off the disappearing messages feature in WhatsApp.

For instance, if you add a contact to the Read Later option you will not receive any kind of notifications from the person. A settings menu also allows you to choose if you want to save received media to your gallery, backup chats under the category, and have chats get automatically unarchived when you receive a new message.

Another feature that has been discovered is under development, and one a lot of users will love is "Read Later".

How the WhatsApp Read Later feature works?

This new offering will essentially be an improved version of the existing Archived Chats feature. The cited source says that this option will first be rolled out to Android users. Once the contact is added users will no longer receive any sort of notifications from the person whether it's a message, call or any other. The messaging platform is yet to reveal more details about the Read Later feature.

When will the feature rollout?

As the feature is already being tested we can expect it to roll out to happen very soon for users globally.
