Just a few days ago, a feature like Disappearing Message was added to WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook. For Messenger and Instagram users, Facebook has come up with a similar feature called ‘Vanish Mode’. Even if you activate this feature like disappearing messages, you can get rid of unnecessary messages. In that case, if the user leaves the chat, the messages sent through it will disappear automatically! As a result, the user does not have to delete the messages separately.
So it is understood that even though the name of the vanish mode is different from the disappearing message feature. Only in one case is this new feature of Facebook different from the disappearing message. Unwanted old messages also disappear automatically in the Disappearing Messages feature, but in that case they remain in the chat for up to 7 days. However, if the user leaves the chat in vanish mode, the messages will be deleted automatically.
The Vanish Mode feature is available in the latest version of Instagram and Messenger. As a result, you will not be able to take advantage of this feature without new updates. Let’s see how to activate Vanish mode in Messenger and Instagram.
1. To activate Vanish mode on your device, first open the app (Instagram / Messenger).
2. Now go to any chat window and swipe up from the bottom of the screen. This will enable vanish mode.
3. After turning on or off, Instagram and Messenger will show the ‘Vanish Mode’ option in the chat window.
4. Vanish mode can be disabled by swiping up again from the bottom of the chat window. Also, the vanish mode feature will be turned off even if you exit the chat window.
Lastly, there is no problem in sending cross-app messages to Instagram and Messenger using the Vanish Mode feature.
