Hello friends today i am going to tell you about new WhatsApp update we all were eagerly waiting for adding the ability to delete and revoke messages after you’ve sent them, you will be able to delete messages upto 7 minute after you send them and they will dissapear from conversations and group chat.
For delete messages, you’ll get a new option after you select delete, allowing you to delete for everyone. Instead for just from your own device, right now apps delete option was fairly useless as it only removes message for the person who send it. That means that those the message wasn’t intended for can still read it. Most WhatsApp users will agree that this update is long overdue. WhatsApp’s ‘delete for everyone’ isn’t limited to text messages as it works for photos, videos, GIFS, contact cards, etc as well.
How to delete sent messages :-
To delete the messages, you have to select all the messages that you want to delete. After that, you have to click on the delete option. As soon as you see a option menu. Select any one of the options given below in front of you and select OK. The message sent by you will be deleted. Keep in mind that this option will only be shown for the messages sent immediately.
Exception where Delete for Everyone feature doesn’t work for-
- Message contained in a quoted message cannot be revoked.
- Messages can be recalled only within a 7 minutes of time frame after which you cannot recall or revoke it.
- It will not work on Symbain OS
- The feature is a slow roll out. You may receive the activation message any time but in case you don’t then uninstall and reinstall the app. You can also go to WhatsApp’s Setting> Chats> Backup and perform it.
However, it does not work for quoted messages or broadcast messages. Recipents should have latest WhatsApp to use this update. Meanwhile, WhatsApp is working on the ability to edit sent messages as well. Although also there are some users who are enjoying this update since last couple of months they were using WhatsApp mod app (GBwhatsapp).
