How to use View Once Feature on WhatsApp

WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature to the beta users which lets you send disappearing photos and video files. This photo or video can only be viewed once by the receiver and then it will automatically disappear from the chat. This feature is working in the WhatsApp Beta version 2.21.14.3 and can send view once messaging to non-beta users as well and it will work as intended. This feature is just like disappearing messages but with photos and videos.
