WhatsApp released new options for its Disappearing Messages feature. The Snapchat-inspired feature debuted late last year, allowing users to have messages disappear from individual conversations after seven days.

In June, WhatsApp added View Once and account-level Disappearing Messages, giving users new ways to remove messages after they’ve been sent.

WhatsApp added two more time frames Monday to choose from for Disappearing Messages: 24 hours and 90 days. These options will be available alongside the existing seven-day time limit.

In addition, WhatsApp users can now turn on Disappearing Messages automatically for all new one-on-one chats they begin and those that are started with them.
