WhatsApp 'Delete for Everyone' message time limit extended

WhatsApp tips and tricks

However, it must be noted that the extended deadline is live for WhatsApp Android beta version 2.18.69. However, many Android users, through unauthorised WhatsApp versions could delete WhatsApp message as old as 3 years.

Who can use this feature?

WhatsApp users across the globe breathed a collective sigh of relief last October when the app introduced a way of unsending messages that had already been dispatched - calling back missives from the ether, as long as you retrieved it within seven minutes or so.

With its users growing by the day, WhatsApp is continuing to push out new features and updates in a bid to keep its army of followers happy.

Attacker shot dead outside Iran diplomat's Vienna residence
The soldier, who was standing guard outside the building, suffered a wound to his upper arm in the attack. The Standard newspaper reported that the attack was carried out by a 26-year old Austrian national.

Now, we have learned that the company has increased its time limit to 4096 seconds, that is around 1 hour 8 minutes. When the recipient received this particular message contained the revoke request, WhatsApp checked if the ID of the message was present in the database and directly deleted it.

What's more, if you do delete a message, the other people in the conversation see a "message deleted" alert - so they know that you've said something you've regretted, and may ask you some awkward questions about it. Now, it seems that the popular messaging app is planning of rolling out another feature "Block Revoke Request". The time limit is 24 hours rather than 1 hour to account for phones which are offline when the Delete for All message is sent.

If you've sent something by mistake you can now delete it. Tap and hold it you'll pop-up window will appear with quick links to Reply, Forward, Copy and Delete.

Hitting the Delete symbol and selecting Delete for Everyone will remove the message for good.
