Groups are known to quickly become clogged with photos, videos, and GIFs that take up valuable space on your iPhone or Android device.

But it could soon be a problem of the past.

Leaked screenshots suggest that WhatsApp is developing groups that have an expiry date.

So you can set the group to clean up on a day or a week, or set your own custom date.

As the description says, “if enabled, you will be prompted to purge groups on expiration date”.

The option is hidden in the group settings – although it’s not widely available yet.

WABetaInfo spotted an early look at the feature on iOS.

As with any beta build, it’s still very early days and WhatsApp could ultimately decide not to release it to the general public at all.

But when it comes to fruition, it will surely be useful and popular.

If you want to try the latest WhatsApp features first, you can join the app’s beta program.

How to get the WhatsApp beta

To download WhatsApp Beta for your smartphone, you need to go to Google Play on your Android and search for WhatsApp.

Scroll down the page until you see “Become a Beta Tester”.

Tap the “I’m in” button, then tap “Join” to confirm.

Now all you have to do is wait for the update to the beta version of the app.

Participating in the WhatsApp beta on iOS is more difficult and has a limited capacity.
