WeChat Introduces Ephemeral Messaging Feature

In what seems to be a growing trend in the messaging app space, WeChat announced new features that pull from the success of SnapChat. WeChat users will now be able to recall the message they’ve sent within two minutes by long-pressing the message and clicking ‘Unsend.’ The feature works on photos as well. The move is a big nod to the type of privacy and control that users have responded positively to on SnapChat and other apps; expect to see more similar moves like it in the near future.
