Pausing threat to Meta-owned WhatsApp, Signal has introduced a new feature that allows users to customise how to post their stories. Using the new functionality, stories can now automatically expire 24 hours after being shared, however anybody can manually delete them at any time before that. Just choose “Stories” from the Settings menu and disable Stories to ensure maximum privacy.
“Today, stories have significantly changed how people communicate on social media, and adding such entertaining elements is another way to increase content engagement without effort,” a report said.
With the new function provided at Signal, it allows the user to hold private discussions with the people who matter, it was noted. “There has been speculation about keeping privacy,” it said. The platform has decided to manage story viewing in a more comprehensive manner.
Everyone in your phone’s contact list who uses Signal, anybody with whom you have spoken privately (even without creating a contact), and anyone who has agreed to receive messages from you, can watch stories. According to the report, stories may also be shared with smaller groups of people or groups, and one can design a unique structure to keep track of who has read each narrative.
