Instagram tests disappearing correspondence

Disappearing photos in private messages and 24-hour stories are no longer enough. Instagram is going to allow subscribers to hide their correspondence. More precisely, to communicate with the interlocutor so that the chat history is not preserved and does not cause future shame when re-reading.

A test function through reverse engineering (reverse engineering of source code) was discovered by Twitter user Jane Manchun Wong. She loves to delve into software products and find undocumented application features.

So she managed to find the “Incognito” mode in correspondence on Instagram. In this mode, messages are displayed in the chat until the conversation window is closed. When you re-enter, they disappear.

Instagram is working on “mode” where messages disappear

It seems to be in an early barebone version but I tried my best to demonstrate how it might work

Apparently, the function is in an early stage of development.
