WhatsApp has the feature of sending photos and videos on the recipient’s mobile at a single glance and then disappearing and being viewed once on both Android and iOS devices. This allows you to share content that you do not always want available in your chat. Images and videos shared once viewed will not be stored in the recipient’s phone’s photos or gallery. WhatsApp brings a bit of temporaryness through the View Ones feature.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use WhatsApp’s View Ones feature on your Android or iOS device.
How To Use WhatsApp View Once On Android And iOS
Before we get started with the steps on how to use View once in WhatsApp, it should be noted that if you send a photo or video using the feature, it will not be viewed again in the chat. You will not be able to share, save, star or share the photos or videos you are sharing with Media Enabled. Also, photos and videos shared using the View Once feature will expire from the chat if they are not opened within 14 days of being sent.
Open the latest version of WhatsApp on your device and select the photo or video you want to show your contact once.
Tap the display icon once next to the title bar. You will see a warning appear in the middle of your content to confirm the functionality of the feature.
Now, press the send button to share that photo or video with your contacts.
It is worth noting that WhatsApp only recommends that users send View Once enabled photos or videos to trusted individuals. This is because the recipient can take a screenshot or screen recording of the media before it disappears. You will not be notified or notified if a screenshot or screen recording is taken. The recipient can take a photo or record video of the media using the camera or other device.
The company says that encrypted media sent using View One will be stored on WhatsApp servers for a few weeks after you send it. Media will also be shared with WhatsApp if the recipient chooses to report it in the app.
