WhatsApp to update ‘delete for everyone’ feature

Facebook-owned WhatsApp will soon upgrade its ‘delete for everyone’ feature as per users’ requests.

According to WABetaInfo, a website that regularly monitors the beta updates to WhatsApp, the new feature will let its users delete mistakenly sent messages within a longer duration of time.

With the update, messages can now be deleted within 68 minutes from the moment the message was sent. Currently, the messaging application only allows its users to delete the messages within 7 minutes.

“Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete messages for everyone,” WhatsApp’s FAQ read.

The ‘delete for everyone’ feature was introduced to its users in November 2017. Since then, many users have expressed their request to extend duration of deletable messages since 7 minutes is too short.

The update is still currently being tested on beta and is not yet available for public use. Reports state that the update is usable Android beta version 2.18.69, with stable release for Android and iOS to follow soon.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is currently working on other updates and upgrades including a feature that will allow users to mark forwarded message and a feature that will allow users to put group descriptions by tapping the group name of the chat, The Indian Express reported.
