A number of popular mobile apps have been set to disable their multimedia messages in the new year.
It comes amid a wave of crackdowns and warnings on social media platforms over fake news.
The removal of media messages, commonly known as mute messages, has become increasingly common in recent years as users have become increasingly wary of being targeted by malicious users.
A number of apps such as iMessage, WhatsApp and Snapchat have also been made mute to stop people being targeted.
In February, Google announced a new version of its messaging app, which also allows users to mute their messages.
In March, Google also announced a way to mute notifications from Facebook Messenger, but this was also removed in October.
On Facebook, users can mute their Messenger conversations using the option to disable a particular message, a feature that can be turned on by going to the settings menu.
Users can also disable a message by hitting the “Delete” button on the message and entering the desired text.
There is no way to remove a message without leaving the app.
Movies are also mute for the new years.
With the end of the year, movies will also be banned in the US, Europe and Canada, meaning they cannot be played on streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube.
