WhatsApp users will soon have 1 hour to delete embarrassing messages
Last year WhatsApp introduced ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature, although users only had seven minutes to delete sent messages.
According, to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp android users with beta version 2.18.69 will have the feature extended from seven minutes to 68 minutes.
The report notes that the extended delete feature will work for all types of WhatsApp message, including GIFs, files, locations, and videos.
After a message has been deleted users will see a message saying "this message was deleted" in place of the original message, but WhatsApp notes that this feature will only work if both the recipient and sender have the latest version of the application installed.
