The VKontakte team announced the launch of a couple of new convenient functions at once. Two new types of messages have appeared in the mobile application: disappearing and silent.
Disappearing messages will allow you to worry less about how you will be perceived: you can easily share funny pictures or suggest new topics in large chats. The user decides for himself when the message disappears: there are options from 15 seconds to 24 hours. After that, the chat will only be marked “The message has disappeared.”
Quiet messages come in handy, for example, if you want to work at night. You can write to your colleagues and not be afraid to wake them up with notifications. It will not be superfluous to take care of the interlocutor during the day: a quiet message will show that the question is not urgent and you can return to it at a convenient time.
To make a message silent or disappear, you need to hold down the send button and select the desired type. The function will become available to users during the day.
