WhatsApp gives you over 68 minutes to delete messages,
The change was first spotted by WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp update tracking site. The site notes that v2.18.68 WhatsApp beta version for Android includes an update to the Stickers feature that disabled by default – a slight modification of its icon. Since the news was reported on Friday, WhatsApp has released two more beta versions for Android (v2.18.70 and v.2.18.71), and WABetaInfo has spotted new disabled-by-default features like Locked Recording (locking the voice message record button into place when recording), and sticker pack size display.
Another feature WhatsApp was recently spotted in testing, but once again disabled by default, shows whether a message has been forwarded. The Forwarded Message label shows up on top of message if it has been forwarded from another, or same chat. The move if nothing classifies forwards, and could be amongst the first steps to combat spam and fake news. The feature was spotted in WhatsApp beta (v2.18.67) for Android. The same version also brought Stickers to Android – but can’t be used.
The multiplier application, WhatsApp, will bring a significant change in the deletion of the messages that have been sent.
The option has been in place for some time, but is expected to undergo another time-related change.
Currently, every person has 7 minutes to delete a message, but this time will be expanded and we will have a full 68 minutes and 16 seconds, writes Telegraph.
The engineers have also thought about the case when the same message is probably needed again. You can retrieve the deleted message. Regarding the change, testing has started and is expected to become active soon. / Telegraph /
