Facebook tester snapchat stil forsvinder meddelelser inden for sit Messenger app i Frankrig, tilbyde brugerne mulighed for at sætte en besked til selvdestruktion en time efter den er sendt.

Blot at trykke et timeglas ikon på Messenger-app tænder evnen, som forbliver aktiv, indtil den er slukket. Det spejler funktioner i andre messaging apps: Snap Chat, for eksempel, fjerner beskeder læste engang, mens Googles chat-platform giver mulighed for at forhindre, at samtaler i at blive gemt i historien.

In a statement to Buzzfeed, which first reported the test, Facebook said: “We’re excited to announce the latest in an engaging line of optional product features geared towards making Messenger the best way to communicate with the people that matter most.

“Starting today, we’re conducting a small test in France of a feature that allows people to send messages that disappear an hour after they’re sent.

Slingshot still offered the ephemeral messaging of Snapchat, but offered a few twists of its own, most notably the ability to require a photo in return before a message could be viewed. And unlike Poke, it is still available to download on the App Store.
