WhatsApp rolling out "Delete for Everyone" feature for all users

WhatsApp rolling out

One can also select multiple messages to delete them together. However users will not be able to delete a message for everyone if the message has been quoted since WhatsApp doesn't recall this type of messages now.

The company calls it "Delete for Everyone" which is located under the delete messages option. Further, the feature can only be used within the seven minutes of time span after sending the message.

A few months ago, a report detailed a WhatsApp feature that let users revoke their sent messages from the recipient's device.

Tap Delete at the top of the screen Delete for everyone or Delete for me. Not only text messages, you can also delete unintended images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, contact cards, files, location, quoted messages, and status replies. You may receive the activation message any time but in case you don't then uninstall and reinstall the app. Currently, it is reported by WABetaInfo that users in Singapore and Spain are already receiving the feature, but there's no info on Indian roll out though and I did not receive the feature even though being on the latest WhatsApp Beta version. With such blurred lines in between it's easy to mix up names and occasionally send an inappropriate text to someone who was not suppose to receive it. If you delete a message in the group, it will replace the text as message deleted by the user. You will not be notified by WhatsApp if the message has been revoked or recalled if the recipient in on Symbian device.

As noted above the recipient of the message has to be on the latest WhatsApp version installed to have the delete for everyone feature working. The team has been testing this feature for over a year now and has now finally enabled the feature for all users on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Web platforms.

The update is available in only a couple regions and will gradually be rolled out for other regions.

- The feature works only if both sender and receiver are using the updated version of WhatsApp.

The feature also has its own limitations like it does not work with quoted messages, broadcast messages are also not supported as of now.
