WhatsApp could soon add expiration dates to group chats, so you no longer have to deal with so much clutter in your inbox.

If you open your Whatsapp now, we expect that you will find a backlog of chats that no longer exist for group projects that have long been handed in, for coordinating events that happened years ago, and for communicating with school friends you already know. haven’t seen in ten years. Most of these you had probably long forgotten about, with the unnecessary chats cluttering up your smartphone’s storage with messages and images from chats you no longer need.

According to a leak, WhatsApp is getting a feature that lets you unclog your inbox called ‘Expiring Groups’ (via WaBetaInfo (opens in new tab)). If the feature has been added, you should find it on the group info page; by using it, you can set when you are prompted to “clean up” the group by choosing a day, a week, or a custom date. You can also remove the expiration date from the group.

Based on the leaked screenshot, each user would have to set their own expiration date for the group, and it appears WhatsApp won’t automatically delete the group. Instead, it will seemingly remind you that it may be time to leave or delete the group, but the decision is yours.
