Meta-owned instant messaging app, WhatsApp is reportedly working on a "kept messages" feature that will allow users to keep disappearing messages in chat past their expiration time. 

Once disappearing messages are "kept," they can then be viewed by all conversation participants in a new "kept messages" section that will be created in chat info.

As per WABetaInfo, it's still under development but WhatsApp is working on introducing it by presenting information about an upgrade to disappearing messages in a future update of Desktop beta.

The new alert introduces what changes are being made to disappearing messages; that it will be possible to keep a disappearing message to prevent its automatic deletion.

But just like every participant in the conversation can keep the message, they can also "un-keep" messages. Also, WhatsApp says it will allow group admins to limit this feature. 

This could mean that there will be a new privacy setting that will allow group admins to toggle the ability to keep a disappearing message.
