For months WhatsApp has been testing its feature of deleting sent messages and to increase the time limit of these sent messages. And now it has been reported that WhatsApp has been said to be aiming to expand the time limit for the ‘Delete Message for Everyone’ function. Users can only delete their messages once one hour, eight minutes, and sixteen seconds have passed since they were sent.
However, things are about to change, as WhatsApp users may soon be able to erase their messages for everyone seven days after they’ve been sent.
The Delete for Everyone function is a valuable tool that allows you to delete a message that you have sent to the wrong person. There are certain restrictions, such as the fact that you may only erase the message within one hour after sending it. You won’t be able to erase the message for everyone if you miss the deadline. WhatsApp is now working on expanding the time limit to make things easier for users.
The messaging app was seen trying the Delete For Everyone option two times.
WhatsApp has a tracker feature. Wabetainfo has revealed that WhatsApp is planning to modify the duration restriction in a future version to 7 days and 8 minutes.
It was previously reported that WhatsApp might remove the time limit and allow users to erase messages for everyone even after sending them for hours, days, or even years. WhatsApp, on the other hand, has announced that the existing time restriction will be changed at a later date.
The feature is still under development WhatsApp may alter its strategy or impose a new time restriction. Only a full deployment will reveal if WhatsApp will eliminate all limits on deleting messages or change the time limit at a later date. This might take up to seven days or longer. In a similar development, WhatsApp has been observed testing additional audio message playing options. WhatsApp was seen testing the ability to skip through forwarded voice communications. The voice notes may be sped up to a factor of seven and a half.
