Instant Messaging app WhatsApp is planning to extend the time limit of the ‘Delete Message for Everyone’ feature.
Now, the messaging app is testing this feature in different time limits. Currently, users only have the option of deleting the message once sent after one hour, eight minutes, and sixteen seconds. WhatsApp users may get to delete their messages for everyone, seven days after sending them.
When the message deletes, it shows a notification that reads the “Message was Deleted”. However, this feature only works when the recipient doesn’t read the message before deletion. Now, this update will increase the time limit to undefined time.
