Since WhatsApp has also clarified that the messages you send or receive are still end-to-end encrypted.

Messages are automatically deleted once they are successful delivered to where they supposed to be.

Once the message gets delivered successfully to your phone or your contact's phone, they are stored locally on the respective devices. They automatically get deleted from WhatsApp's servers.
