The WhatsApp might be giving a life-saving feature to its 1 billion daily active users shortly. The option that we all have been waiting for a long time to appear in the app soon will be added to the app.
It is being rumored for a long time that WhatsApp is planning to add “Delete for Everyone” feature to the app. The feature enables the user to delete any accidentally or embarrassing sent message from the chat. This new addition would prove as a great opportunity to the users, who accidentally text someone and want to undo it.
Although the company not given any official statement about the future and releasing date but a famous Twitter account WABetaInfo have spilled some beans. The account for WhatsApp beta leaked the information about new feature and said the company is testing the feature and will push it to the devices real soon.
WABetaInfo claims that “Delete for Everyone” works successfully over the servers and company will start enrolling remotely for the users. It's indeed a life-saving option for the users want to undo what they accidentally sent to another person.
