When you ping someone, they'll see a Ping in the conversation view and in the conversation list. The conversation will also move to the top of the list.
Timed Messages are messages that automatically disappear from conversations when the timer you set for them runs out. It works for both private and group conversations on Wire and there’s no need to create a separate secret chat. You can set a timer for anything — text, pictures, videos, links, documents, even pings!
Here's how it works:
The sender will see a timer to the left of the message, and once expired, the message will be replaced by a scribble.
This is a perfect feature for sending sensitive data like credit card details, login information, and other private matters. Just keep in mind that the receiver is still able to take a screenshot.
From shortcuts to pings to timed messages, there are many ways to customize your Wire experience -like a pro.
