Whatsapp Delete For Everyone
The change was first spotted by WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp update tracking site. The site notes that v2.18.68 WhatsApp beta version for Android includes an update to the Stickers features that disabled by default – a slight change of its icon. The feature is now live for WhatsApp Android beta version 2.18.69, with a stable release for Android and iOS to follow soon.
Since the news was reported on Friday, WhatsApp has released two more beta versions for Android (v2.18.70 and v.2.18.71), and WABetaInfo has spotted new disabled-by-default features like Locked Recording (locking the voice message record button into place when recording), and sticker pack size display.
To recall, WhatsApp officially rolled out Whatsapp Delete For Everyone feature globally for Android, iOS, and Windows users in November last year. At the time of the launch, it allowed people delete sent messages, including media within seven minutes of sending them. Both recipient and sender get a notification when messages get successfully deleted.
Though the feature quite useful, some users argued the deadline for deleting a message was too short. Looks like WhatsApp will take care of the issue with its latest update for Android and iOS. With the update, users will be able to delete sent messages even after an hour.
Over the last several weeks, WhatsApp has been testing and bringing new features to its platform on a regular basis. The app added UPI payments for Indian users recently (now restricted to some users only), Group Descriptions, WhatsApp Business, deleting messages and more.
The person or people organizing the event could post key information in the description box, which other members will be able to find easily, without having to scan the entire conversation or ask for details to be repeated.
The software update brings a number of new features to the world’s most popular chat app, including the ability to add time and location stickers to your photos and videos.
This would surely be a popular update and would seem to directly combat the changes Snapchat made to its app recently which received massive backlash from users.
