As spotted by the folks over at WABetaInfo, a new self-destructing photos feature is coming soon to WhatsApp for iOS and Android in a future update.
The upcoming feature is based on the same concept as Instagram Direct, and any photos sent via self-destructing photos feature will not be allowed to export from WhatsApp.
