Signal App Features in Detail:
The Signal app is quite similar to the Messanger you use, yes I am talking about Whatsapp. Most of the features are similar to Whatsapp.
I will share some awesome features that I like about Singal App and these features are not in Whatsapp.
1. View once Media:
In this feature, you can select any message you sent (Text/Media) and then select the option of timer. It means when the media is seen once it gets automatically deleted from the chat.
Isnt it a cool feature? I loved it when I read about it cant resist myself from sharing it with you.
2. Archive Message:
Why delete your chat messages when you can archive them? Yes, let me make it simple, When you select the message in your chat and make it archive it gets disappeared from the chat.
But Archive Messages still exist, you can unarchive them to see them again in the chat. This feature lets you remove the messages but the messages still exist.
3. Screen Security:
The screen security option lets you hide your chat messages from showing them in the notification. This feature also makes your chat secure from Screenshots.
When you turn on the Screen Security option and someone tries to take a screenshot then in the screenshot image only the Blue Signal Logo image will only get captured.
To turn it on go to Privacy >> Screen Security.
4. Chat Message Reaction:
Just like Instagram Messanger, you can react to the Message sent by your contact or in groups. There are a few reactions that can be used to show your response to how you felt about the message in the chat.
5. Conversation length limit:
Last but not least, the Conversation Length Limit, is a feature under Storage Management. This feature lets you limit your Chat to a Certain limit and the older chat messages get automatically deleted after that limit.
To manage message history and Conversation length limit:
- In Signal, tap your profile >> Storage.
- Then Select the Conversation length limit.
- Now Select from the options
- 5,000 messages
- 1,000 messages
- 500 messages
- 100 message
- Custom and set the limit.
- If you are changing to a shorter time period, tap Delete to confirm.
