WhatsApp is the world’s biggest instant messaging platform today, with millions of messages flowing through the platform daily. The application has managed to become so because of its ability to consistently reinvent itself by bringing new features to users. And the latest in this list could be a WhatsApp feature that will likely be very well received by its users.
As per reports, WhatsApp is reportedly working on a feature to remove the time limit for deleting a message from the chat. It is being reported that the ‘Delete for Everyone’ option which was first introduced in 2017, will now be getting an upgrade. This upgrade will be a major one as the feature initially had a time limit of seven seconds which later got extended to 4,096 seconds (roughly an hour) in 2018. However, now this could be changed to remove the time limit completely.
For now, there’s no official word on this matter by Meta, but it appears the feature will soon be rolled out to the application and the company will make an announcement on it. The information about this updated ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature comes courtesy of notable tracker WABetaInfo.
WABetaInfo has also made some other interesting revelations recently. It has also been reported that WhatsApp Beta for iOS (v22.214.171.124) is getting a new video playback interface that will allow users to pause, play the video in fullscreen, or close the picture-in-picture window. Interestingly, the publication claims some iOS beta testers have already started receiving this functionality.
