How to Send a Disappearing Photo on Telegram

Table of Contents

Telegram is an instant messaging app with a simple, fast, secure, and synchronized experience.

You can send media and files without size limits, with data securely stored in the Telegram cloud.

Photos that you send can also include a timer—3 seconds, 10 seconds, or 30 seconds.

Once the timer ends, the photo will self-destruct/disappear and the recipient won’t be able to view it anymore.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to send an expiring, a self-destructing, or a disappearing photo or picture on Telegram.
