WhatsApp set to make major change to ‘delete for everyone feature

WhatsApp updates its 'Delete for Everyone' feature

Science 15 Oct 2018 Whats App 'Delete for Everyone' feature updated Details here

"This is a protection against modded users that revoked messages sent weeks, months and years ago".

According to a report by WABetaInfo, this new update has added a check where if the recipient of the message does not receive the delete request for the message in 13 hours, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds then the message will not be deleted. However, there was a time limit set upon for deletion which was 7 minutes initially.

The delete for everyone feature made its debut on the app earlier this year, ensuring that people can remove their goof-up texts sent to a wrong group or person. It said, "WhatsApp has updated the "Recipient limit".

WhatsApp has started testing a new update for its messaging service with the main focus set on revising its "Delete for everyone" feature. There might be occasions when a recipient won't be prompted for a request and this can happen when their phone is switched off or when the cellular data is turned off.

Time, the G.O.A.T. vs. the young gun-and Mahomes proved to be a worthy opponent. "I don't think we've seen our best". On Sunday, the quarterback did it again - and again - to leads the Patriots to a insane 43-40 win over the Chiefs.

For users of the regular versions of WhatsApp, the Recipient limit remains the same in terms of the time limit and can be revoked when done under 1 hour 8 minutes and 16 seconds of the message being sent. Meaning that now, the recipient of the message must get the revoke request within 13 hours, eight minutes, and 16 seconds for the message deletion to go through.

This also means that if the recipient does not receive the "delete message" request within 13h, 8m, 16s - in case of network issue or if the user's device is off - it can't be deleted from the sender's end. So far, WhatsApp's "Status" feature allows the user to post a series of pictures or videos that are on the platform for a limited period, but soon the ads could be squeezed in between posts.

The new update also comes amidst WhatsApp developers working on adding Sticker support to the app.
