After launching disappearing messages last year, WhatsApp is working on images that self-destruct when you leave a chat.
In November, WhatsApp started rolling out a new disappearing messages feature, which lets users send and receive messages that delete themselves after seven days.
If seven days seems like an eternity to you, worry not – WhatsApp is now working on a new feature that causes images to disappear when you leave a chat.
According to WABetaInfo, the new feature, which is still in development, will be available on iOS and Android when rolled out. We don’t actually know when that might be, but the next two to three months is a realistic timeframe.
WhatsApp is working on self-destructing photos in a future update for iOS and Android.
• Self-destructing photos cannot be exported from WhatsApp.
• WhatsApp didn't implement a screenshot detection for self-destructing photos yet.

According to WABetaInfo, Instagram Direct disappearing messages work in exactly the same way.
