Have you ever in your whole life wished that you hadn’t sent a particular WhatsApp message? The decisiveness of messages sent on chat-apps frequently leaves users to regret poor decision making, commonly at odd hours.
Whereas WhatsApp released a slew of latest features in 2017, counting two-step verification, a new Snapchat-like status feature, and more files types for data transfer, and giving a boost to the media sharing limit, apparently the best is yet to come. It has been reported that WhatsApp is introducing a feature that allows the users to revoke message by deleting them after they send them.
Rumours have been circulating around for some time now, but it is understood that beta testing has started. Some users have started to see the above-mentioned option pop up having the trash can icon. The feature lets the users to ‘Delete for everyone,’ whereas posting group messages within seven minutes of sending it. A ‘Delete for me’ option is also supposed to come soon.
There is one limitation; the feature will just work if all recipients of a specific message are running the latest version of WhatsApp. Moreover, the feature will be extended to messages of different data types such as text, contact files, video, audio, images, quotes messages, GIFs, location pins, and attachments.
As stated in the reports, it is suggested that the app will not notify members of a group if a message has been deleted. Other platforms such as Viber and Telegram have already adopted the message-recall technology. Gmail, which works on a varying protocol, also contains a provision named as Undo Send, thus giving users another chance to include information which they might have ignored. Though, the time frame for recalling emails is just 7 seconds.
When the ‘Delete for everyone’ feature of WhatsApp is finally presented, it will make sure that the users given to twiddling their thumbs will have no reason to regret not thinking two times before they type.
