WhatsApp now gives you over an hour to delete that message

WhatsApp now gives you over an hour to delete that message

The new improvement emerges days after the WhatsApp beta for Android received an update to give users 4,096 seconds to delete a message - a substantial increase over the original seven-minute window. Very specific, we know, it's 4096 seconds, or 2^12, but go figure why the WhatsApp algorithms got so peculiar, maybe because it's very easy to crunch in processor-speak.

If you use WhatsApp to communicate with your friends, you can now delete a message up to one hour, eight minutes, and 16 seconds after you send it.

Once the new message is over its beta testing, users will be able to delete messages for everyone even after an hour has passed. "A new WhatsApp for iOS update (2.18.31) is available on AppStore".

Having textual regret? If you sent your message via WhatsApp, you'll now have more than an hour to recall it. This makes the feature to delete message restricted to the official limit and doesn't allow any modded versions to extend the limit through an unofficial means. Maybe it's the time you bitched about a friend without realising they were a part of the WhatsApp group you sent the message to. Messages that have a time more than the 24 hours are no more deleted. This allows people to delete a message sent to groups or individuals, thereby removing the offending content and leaving recipients with only, "This message was deleted".

First released in January 2009, WhatsApp now has user base of over one and a half billion, making it the most popular messaging application of all time. This ensures that nobody can tamper with the feature to delete messages for everyone.
