WhatsApp is rolling out support for self-destructing photos and videos à la Snapchat

WhatsApp is rolling out support for self-destructing photos and videos à la Snapchat

There are times where you want to send across a message or a video but you don't want the recipient to see it more than once. That's pretty much the reason why Snapchat was invented. However, the concept has since been picked up by various other applications, and Facebook-owned WhatsApp is the latest one to jump on the disappearing messages bandwagon, as the company has now announced.

We're one step closer to getting our hands on these new products, as the company mistakenly published them on its online store for a short while.

RedMagic 6R long-term review: One-trick pony

Last year, RedMagic refreshed the RedMagic 5G as the RedMagic 5S, but there weren't many differences between the two, raising the question of why the 5S was necessary to begin with. This year, the RedMagic 6 is seeing a significant change with the looming launch of the RedMagic 6R.

The software still stinks, but there's no arguing that this hardware is a stupendous value.
