WhatsApp will increase the delete limit for everyone by more than two days: Report


WhatsApp, as of now, gives users a time period of one hour, eight minutes and 16 seconds, from the time they have shared a message to delete it. But that is about to change as Meta-owned Messaging is reportedly working on increasing this limit by two days.

According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has started rolling out the new deadline for select users who are using the latest version of WhatsApp Beta for Android app. As a part of the changes, the company is planning to increase the time limit for deleting a message from one hour, eight minutes and 16 seconds to two days and 12 hours.

The blog site said that the company owned by Meta has started rolling out the feature to select beta testers. It is expected to be available for more beta users in the coming days. “We can also confirm that the new deadline is indeed 2 days and 12 hours, the same as was planned during the development of the facility,” the site said. wrote,

Improved erasure for all

Notably, this is not the only improvement that the company is planning to bring to its feature to delete messages. According to reports, the company is also working on bringing a feature that will allow WhatsApp group admins to delete any message from their group. As of now, a message in a group can only be deleted by the member who shared it.

According to WABetaInfo, when the feature is enabled, users will be able to delete incoming messages for everyone in the group. However, other group members will be notified who has deleted a particular message in the group using a notification, which is similar to what users get to see in the app when a member has deleted their message.

Group admins will be shown a message that says, “As an admin, you are deleting someone else’s message for everyone in this chat. They will see that you have deleted the message.”

This feature is currently in development and there is no word on when the company will make this feature available to all its users across the world.
