facebook-messenger-self-destruct-message

Consumers in France have noticed a new feature within the Facebook Messenger app, which lets you set the message that will self-destruct after a certain period of time. The test function is currently limited to users in France, but Facebook says it can activate its function in the test phase and in other countries.

Facebook confirmed the test, saying that this function can be included in any call by press the “hourglass” in the upper right corner. The term is currently limited to one hour and deletion applies only to a conversation, not all in Messenger. Also function can be turned off at any time.

The self-destructing chats would put Facebook in competition with Snapchat. As we know in 2013. Facebook tried to buy Snapchat for the 3 billion us dollars, but that time 25-year-old CEO Evan Spiegel declined the offer.

Snapchat already costs more and has a much more stable position in the market as it continues to grow and develop its services. Snapchat also signed deals with Hollywood studios, advertising and partnerships. Short-term messages in Snapchat remain a major pillar of its popularity, but new Facebook Messenger feature can become a major threat to the service.
