WhatsApp testing new feature which allows users to delete sent texts

WhatsApp testing new feature which allows users to delete sent texts”

We've all done it: sent a text message to the wrong person or group in WhatsApp.

The feature apparently already works for users who have rooted their phones.

However most users do not have access to the feature.

The Unsend function is expected to work on all types of messages, including text, images, videos, GIFs and documents.

According to screenshots, a deleted message will be replaced with the phrase: "This message was deleted".

Unsend is likely to prove extremely popular with users, as it could help them avoid embarrassment. WhatsApp has your back, however, with the messaging client's latest beta allowing you to delete those embarrassing messages of you slamming a can on your head that you sent.

Reported by WABetaInfo, Android insiders are now testing the feature, with WhatsApp having turned on the dedicated recall server on its end.

"It will be remotely enabled later, and seen that WhatsApp "enabled" their servers for the Delete for Everyone feature, it may really be enabled soon".

The highly reliable WABetaInfo revealed details of the feature on Twitter, highlighting differences between the way the Android and iOS versions of the app will handle message deletion.
