Apparently you can only add it to one device as you only get one encryption key and this service will be widely available this summer.

GIFs and videos won't be included for the launch and you can turn off the timer if you prefer messages to be private but you want to keep a record of them for yourself.

Of course for anyone embarking on a risky affair this will be a cheater's dream and the internet has started to have its say about how easy this technology makes it to "do the dirty'.

On the plus side businesses, hackers, telecoms, governments and even Facebook won't be able to see or record your conversation as you can choose to add a timer to each chat you have. Once your time is up the message will disappear Snapchat style.
