How to send messages that self-destruct in Messenger

Facebook Messenger (Android | iOS) and Instagram have conversation modes with messages that self-destruct after a period. For Messenger, this is called “Secret Chat”, while being named “Temporary Mode” on Instagram Direct.

In Messenger, the user can activate the feature in a conversation between two people and send messages that disappear after a while using end-to-end encryption.
