Facebook Inc(NASDAQ:FB) is testing disappearing messages, à la Snapchat, in its Messenger app in France, the company confirmed on Thursday, according to fortune
The new feature, first spotted by BuzzFeed, lets users choose to have their messages disappear after one hour. Users can turn it on and off by tapping on an hourglass-shaped icon at the top right corner of the screen. The feature only affects the conversation the user is presently in, Facebook (FB) says.
“We’re excited to declare the latest in an engaging line of optional product features geared towards making Messenger the best way to communicate with the people that matter most,” the company said in a statement to Fortune via email. “Starting recently, we’re conducting a small test in France of a feature that allows people to send messages that disappear an hour after they’re sent. Disappearing messages gives people another fun option to choose from when they communicate on Messenger.” Fortune added
The disappearing messaging feature is presently only available for iOS and Android users in France. Facebook might roll it out to other markets, but there are no concrete plans at the moment, according to a spokeswoman. Messenger presently has 700 million monthly active users worldwide.
