This new update will not affect the previous chats or conversations and media. But if once this disappearing feature is enabled, messages you sent will automatically disappear after 7 days
even if your Whatsapp is not in use. one can get back-up of these messages but it will be deleted if he/she tries to restore from the backed-up data. According to their statement the new feature will be launched this month and it has also cautioned it’s users to be careful while enabling this feature as there are chances of users copying, saving or taking a screenshot of messages.
