WhatsApp’s new update might bring long-awaited feature, yes you are right – the ability to delete or recall sent messages.
If you’ve ever sent a message to the wrong individual, then this new feature will save you. WhatsApp will now allow users to Delete sent messages.
The feature was apparently disabled by default, and the recall and editing privileges are under development. Once it’s available, you’ll have the ability to edit or remove only recent messages but not old messages. When a revoked message has attachments like text, image, sound or video files, the files will be deleted from the receiver’s phone also, if and when it’s connected to the web.
WhatsApp now lets you Delete sent messages
But so far it isn’t clear how long the users will need to ‘remember’ a sent message. It is very likely to be within minutes, like that in Gmail. Another condition that seems likely is that the receiver shouldn’t have seen the message. This implies the ‘recall window’ will be available only until the receiver reads the message.
However, the users will have the ability to edit only recent messages rather than the previous ones. Now WhatsApp is shortly going to roll out a new update that will enable users to remember or delete the messages that are unread. So the next time you send a message meant for someone mistakenly to somebody else on WhatsApp, don’t worry! WhatsApp has been analyzing the Remember feature since months and is testing it on smartphones before allowing its stable version throughout the planet. WhatsApp regularly includes new upgrades that further enhance its usefulness among its users.
The messaging app can be found in over 50 different languages around the globe and 10 Indian languages and has 1.2 billion monthly active users. The program now has 200 million monthly active users in India.
The ‘Recall’ feature isn’t accessible for all its users since it’s in the testing phase and will only be rolled out to the general public once it’s been tested enough and is proven to be bug-free.
Does the new upgrade let WhatsApp understand where you’re at any given moment — but it is going to let your contacts view your current location, too.
This feature will be available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone. It’ll arrive in the next few weeks or, at the very latest, in the coming weeks.
