WhatsApp FINALLY lets user delete sent messages, here's how to do it

WhatsApp FINALLY lets user delete sent messages, here's how to do it

We saw last month that WhatsApp was testing the ability to recall sent messages, and it is now rolling out the feature to all users ...

WhatsApp's new Delete for everyone feature is said to be the prominent among the most asked for one, and is probably going to make things marginally less demanding for WhatsApp clients.

WhatsApp users will be able to delete messages that they have either sent to a group or an individual chat. Additionally, WhatsApp doesn't give you any sort of notification if you were able to successfully delete a message or not.

5- But at the same time WhatsApp warns that the person who receives a message may see it before you had the chance to recall.

According to WhatsApp's FAQ page, the anticipated delete feature allows you to expunge that autocorrect fail or message sent to the wrong person from the record.

The feature is now rolling out to users on Android and iOS, although it is unclear how widespread and quickly the launch will take place. It will let people recall sent messages within seven minutes of sending them.

WhatsApp has begun the roll out of the service to some Android, iPhone and Windows phones. WABetaInfo, a platform that sends out news related to Whatsapp beta versions had first indicated about the rollout. Initially, This feature termed as "WhatsApp Recall", But it called as "Delete for everyone" feature'.

If you choose the second the message/image/video will be removed from everyone's smartphone. To access the delete functionality, just tap and hold.

In July, the messaging app had claimed to have crossed the one-billion daily users milestone globally. Thankfully, WhatsApp will soon allow you to do just that.

However, another question which pops up: How will this change legal implications of WhatsApp messages, in case they are presented as evidence in the Court of Law? Whenever you tap the trash icon after selecting a text, the corresponding alert will now have two entries - "Delete for Everyone" and "Delete for Me". That's a pretty major deal-breaker at this point but, as time goes by and more people update their app, the option to undo those embarrassing mis-messages will apply to more and more conversations.
