WhatsApp, the messaging app has extended the time duration for ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature. The feature allows the user to delete any sent message within the window of 7 minutes. This means if you have mistakenly sent a message and wanted to delete it then you have only 7 minutes to undo it from the moment you hit ‘send’. Now, the company has pushed an update for the WhatsApp Android Beta with version 2.18.69 that extends the time to use the feature.

According to WABetaInfo, the beta version of WhatsApp with the latest version extends the time duration from 7 minutes to 68 minutes. The app allows the beta testers to delete any sent message even after an hour of sending it.

update

‘Delete For Everyone’ was added by the chatting app in November last year for its users. The feature enables the users to delete any sent text and media files within the window of 7 minutes. The deleted message shows a notification to both the sender and the receiver mentioning the message has been deleted. However, the users seemed to be unsatisfied with the time gap given to them for deleting the message. Now, it seems that the company finally heard the users and will be giving time extension with the next update.

In addition, the Facebook-owned messaging platform is simultaneously working on other features. This includes the option to mark the messages as ‘forwarded message’  that have been forwarded from same or another chats. Along with this, WhatsApp is also working on a new set of stickers and support to forward the stickers in chat. The beta version of Android and Microsoft WhatsApp also have the description feature under testing. The feature enables the users (even the non-admin members) to add the description just by tapping the name of the group.

WABetaInfo also reported that WhatsApp is also testing a ‘Locked Recording’ feature in Beta 2.18.70 and 2.18.71 versions. This allows the user to lock the recording button instead of holding it while recording the voice memos.
