How to turn disappearing messages on or off in a group

You can send messages that disappear on WhatsApp by turning disappearing messages on. You can choose to have messages disappear after 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days. Once enabled, new messages sent in the chat will disappear after the duration you select. Messages sent or received before disappearing messages is enabled won’t be affected.
