Yesterday WhatsApp enabled photos which can only be viewed once in WhatsApp Beta for Android. These photos or videos can only be viewed once and when the photo is closed there is no trace left on the mobile. If you try to open it again, nothing happens. Well, something’s going on, if you insist enough: an easter egg is shown.
WhatsApp is not very fond of Easter eggs or Easter eggs. Until now I did not have one, but the photos that disappear are accompanied by the Whatsapp first easter egg
Ssssshhhhh … it’s a secret
When you send a photo that can only be viewed on WhatsApp, the preview will not show in the chat. Instead, the text appears (1) Photography. As the person who sent the photo, if you touch this message, the photo will not open. If the other person taps it, it opens and you can see the photo, albeit only once. When you close the photo preview, you cannot reopen it.
When the sender opens the photo, the status and text of the message change to Open, and neither you nor the other person can do anything more with this message. Well yes there is one thing you can do, see the WhatsApp Easter egg constantly tapping on the message. After a few taps, an emoji 🤫 appears hovering over the message.
The Easter egg is subtle, yet hilarious. Only the person who sent the photo can activate it, that is, it appears in the bubbles themselves, in green. The recipient, no matter how hard they keep touching the message, won’t be able to reopen the photo or see the floating emoji.
As an Easter Egg, it’s simple, although in a way it’s curious that the WhatsApp development team decided to include it in an app that, aside from the stickers, has still a certain reputation for seriousness. By the way, that silence emoji it is only visible to youSo don’t be afraid to strike mercilessly – the other person won’t know.
