Now you have longer to delete your WhatsApp messages


WhatsApp has extended the time frame in which you can delete your sent message to one hour.

However, it must be noted that the extended deadline is live for WhatsApp Android beta version 2.18.69.

Just as with any popular platform, WhatsApp has fans who are quite happy to use it while conceding that there are things that need to be improved. Back in October past year the UK's most popular messaging client, WhatsApp, introduced "delete for everyone" to facilitate such actions based on your second thoughts.

WhatsApp recently introduced a Delete for All feature which allowed users to delete messages already sent to other WhatsApp users.

The other Big 12 schools in the tournament are: Kansas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Kansas State, West Virginia and Texas. Questioning Arizona State's participation in the tournament a mere three months ago would have been scoffed at.

According to WaBetaInfo (@wabetainfo), a Twitter account that tracks changes in WhatsApp's beta builds, the app will silently add the "Block revoke request" feature, which will prevent the misuse of Delete for everyone feature.

The report states that the chat app has decided on 24 hours as time frame to ensure that the recipient receives the revoke request.

Hitting the Delete symbol will remove the message and the feature works for all types of messages, but only if they were sent less than seven minutes ago. The post points out that this will make sure no-one can illegally delete messages older than 24 hours for everyone. It has also been pointed out that if someone replies to a message in a group, and the same is later deleted for everyone, the message continues to show on the group. "It is a bug fixes update, but it has the new "Delete for everyone" limit, that's 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds".

If you've sent something by mistake don't forget you can quickly delete it.
