WhatsApp now lets you delete messages sent by mistake

Starting now, WhatsApp let you recall accidentally sent messages which were sent to wrong chat or by mistake.

A "Share Live Location" option will be available in the messaging app once it has been updated to its most recent version, which shares your exact location on a map.

That said, if you go back hours later and delete a bad drunken selfie you sent to someone, there's still a chance they'll see it before you delete it.

Secondly there is a time limit of seven minutes since you sent the message.

- Once the update has been rolled out to United Kingdom user, open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you wish to delete.

"Just past year, we shared that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every month".




Delete For Me will delete the message from the sender's phone only and not the recipient's. WhatsApp "Delete for everyone" feature is launched on Android, iOS, and Windows devices as per the reports. You can also select multiple messages to delete at once.

You only have seven minutes to recall a message after you've sent it. And finally, you won't get any notification if deleting for everyone was not successful.

You've been able to delete messages in WhatsApp for a while now, but doing so would only delete it on your end. The second option, Delete for Me, is just exactly what it is; it deletes the message only from your phone. The roll out is said to be sluggish and both sender and recipient should have the updated version to use the new feature. This will surely reduce the embarrassment caused via an accidental message sent to the wrong chats. Quoted messages are currently not supported for recall from what is being reported now.

Are you guilty of ever sending a text message to a person it wasn't meant for?

Tap and hold the message, then choose Delete from the menu.

'APPDATED WhatsApp introduces a range of emojis - but can you tell them apart from Apple's? Also, many incidences of spelling and grammatical errors occur which changes the meaning of the message. However, the source says it works only when both sides have the latest version of WhatsApp.
