How To Start With A Self-Destructing Message?

  • To start with a self-destructing message in Telegram, choose the secret chat option.
  • An Iphone user can top on the stopwatch icon next to the message field area in the secret chat
  • An Android phone user can either tap on the three buttons or just tap on the little stopwatch icon which you see in the person’s profile on top left.Then set the time limit option . One best thing about the time limit option is the timer won’t kick in until the message is being viewed on the recipient’s screen. Also you don’t have to set the time limit again and again, it’s just the one time thing. Well, technically you can send just one timed message — by setting a self-destruct timer, sending your message, then disabling the timer in the Secret Chat. Just note that the timer does not affect messages sent or received before it was set, nor after it is disabled.
  • For sending photos, need not to worry as it will automatically hide initially, and the timer won’t start until the recipient taps on it to open it. 
  • For sending photos, first step is to download the photo and then tap to open it.Also make sure to send the video of the same time limit, as you set it initially, otherwise it will be divided into two parts according to the setted time limit
