WhatsApp lets you delete your embarrassing texts, if you're quick

WhatsApp is rolling out the Delete for Everyone (Recall) feature for all users! | WABetaInfo

Starting now, WhatsApp let you recall accidentally sent messages which were sent to wrong chat or by mistake.

WhatsApp users need to wait for the availability of the updated version of the chat app.

However, a user can not avail the opportunity of correcting their error hours after sending the wrong message. The feature has been a popular request and gives users a way to recall - that is, to delete - a message they sent (hopefully) before the other person sees it.

The new feature will be the saving grace for millions of users who sometimes send embarrassing messages to people but without ways to retract. In its place, your recipient will see a "This message was deleted" notice, so they'll know you have something to hide. It will be coming to all Android, iOS and Windows Phone users, reports WAbetainfo website. Still, deleted messages will display "You deleted this message" while the recipient will see "This message was deleted".

"You will not be notified if deleting for everyone was not successful".

To delete a sent message, Android users simply have to long-press on a message and tap on the delete icon. After that, you'll want to select "Delete for everyone" so it disappears off both you and your recipient's phone. It also works on WhatsApp web.

While it's unknown when the new feature will be available for United Kingdom users, it has begun to roll out to people in the U.S., according to tech site TechCrunch.

Tap and hold the message, then choose Delete from the menu. Also, if the sent message has been opened or read by the receiver, deleting it will only affect their ability to screenshot the message or look for it later.

The quoted message can not be deleted.

The "Delete for Everyone" feature works in the following manner.

You may receive the activation of the feature at any time, but you should consider that the rolling out of the Delete for Everyone feature is very slow.

It's been one of the biggest troubles facing instant messaging since it began: what happens if you wish you'd never sent that text?
