The latest ‘Delete For Everyone’ feature as it is named will now allow WhatsApp users to unsend embarrassing messages.
Good news for those of you who are familiar with the instant-messaging mobile application. The ‘unsend’ feature of WhatsApp was in the works ever since one whole year.
These claims regarding the introduction of the new feature was mentioned in a report on WEBetainfo.
Now, the feature has been rolled out for some users who have phones compatible with Android, iPhone and Windows system.
The featuer only works if both the sender and the recipient have the latest version of WhatsApp installed. It will also work on WhatsApp Web.
According to the report, users will be able to use this option when they press down on the trash icon of the WhatsApp application. A feature ‘Delete for Me’ will also appear alongside ‘Delete For Everyone’.
Delete For Me will delete the message from the sender’s phone only and not the recipient’s. The type of messages that can be deleted are texts, images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, contact, files, location, quoted message, and status replies on WhatsApp.
The new feature was one of the most requested ones from WhatsApp users and is bound to make their lives easier.
