WHATSAPP is working on a feature that could see your messages disappear after 90 days.
A trial of the feature has been spotted on the beta version of the app, which users can download if they want to be the first to test certain features.
WABetaInfo spotted the 90 day disappearing messages test in WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52.
The WhatsApp experts said: "WhatsApp was developing a new option for disappearing messages, that automatically delete messages after 24 hours.
"This option has been spotted in the 184.108.40.206 Android beta update and it was under development.
"The option is still under development, but WhatsApp is now working to introduce another option: 90 days!
"Yes, disappearing messages can expire after 90 days, in a future update."
It seems that users would have to manually turn the feature on and wouldn't lose their messages after 90 days unless they wanted to.
Although the feature is being tested in WhatsApp beta, we can't be certain it will come to the standard version of WhatsApp anytime soon.
If you want to try it out in its development stage you'll need to download WhatsApp beta now.
How to get WhatsApp beta
To download WhatsApp beta for your smartphone you need to go to Google Play on your Android and search for WhatsApp.
Scroll down the page until you see "Become a Beta Tester".
Tap the "I'm In" button and then click "Join" to confirm.
Now all you have to do is wait for the update to the beta version of the app.
Downloading WhatsApp beta on iOS is a much trickier and riskier process so this is not recommended.
However, WhatsApp beta can be downloaded on a computer via the Google Play site.
