If you read my last post about Facebook and Instagram features you'll know that there are a whole host of new things being tested out right now.
One that is starting to be rolled out to some Facebook users is Secret Messages.
It's only available on the Facebook mobile Messenger App right now, and here's what it looks like:
First you'll get a pop up notification asking if you want to use your device for secret conversations. If you click 'ok' you'll then have access to the new secret message feature.
You'll be able to set the time limit for messages to be visible after they've been seen. Then POOF, they're gone!
You can send photos from your camera roll, take a new photo, or send text messages. I wasn't able to send video, but that might be a feature that we'll see in the future.
I feel very 'Inspector Gadget' sending secret messages that will self-destruct!
It isn't really any different to Snapchat now, but by calling it 'Facebook Secret Messages' they've made me feel like a spy on an important mission — which adds a whole other level of fun to it. Well done Facebook, very clever.
