WhatsApp changes its key message deletion feature again

WhatsApp changes its key message deletion feature again”

NEW DELHI:Facebook-owned WhatsApp recently introduced the Delete for Everyone feature which enables users to delete the messages they sent by mistake.

Users originally only had 8 minutes and 32 seconds (512 seconds) to reconsider their actions, but in the last week the company has made a decision to increase the limit to 4096 seconds, that is around 1 hour 8 minutes.

The latest version of the WhatsApp beta app can be found in the Store on your smartphones.

WhatsApp users can understand that a message has been deleted with the "This message has been deleted" prompt in their chat window.

According to WABetaInfo report, the feature works by sending a message to the recipient whenever the sender tries to delete a message for everyone.

WhatsApp has increased the deadline for when a user can apply the "Delete for everyone" feature in a group or private message. When the user deletes a message for everyone, WhatsApp sends a new message to the recipient. The Twitter account said, "In order to stop these bad users, WhatsApp has implemented a "Block revoke request" feature". Report states that WhatsApp has now improved its maths so it now finds a message in the database having the same ID as that of the evoke message request, it first goes through the data of the message saved in the database. "It is a bug fixes update, but it has the new "Delete for everyone" limit, that's 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds". With this, iPhone and iPad (LTE) users will be able to delete unintended messages from group chats after more than an hour. The update is a step to curb exploitation of a feature that was deemed useful by those using the platform.
