WhatsApp's new 'unsend' feature could very well save you from yourself

WhatsApp is rolling out the Delete for Everyone (Recall) feature for all users! | WABetaInfo WhatsApp to Launch 'Delete for Everyone' Feature Soon – Check More Details

Starting now, WhatsApp let you recall accidentally sent messages which were sent to wrong chat or by mistake. To delete these messages, open the chat with the message that's to be deleted, then tap and hold that message. Sent messages will only be deleted within 7 minutes after the user sends the message.

The messaging service has begun rolling out a new "delete for everyone" feature which allows users to unsend a message within seven minutes of sending it - and here how you do it.

"Just previous year, we shared that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every month". It is also possible that the recipient [s] might see the message before it is deleted or if the app malfunctions and deletion is unsuccessful. Similarly, if you see "This message was deleted" in a chat, it means that the sender deleted their message for everyone.

Well those dark days are finally over, and the feature you can thank for that is called 'Delete for Everyone' and it's now rolling out on iPhones, Android smartphones and Windows Phone. Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete messages for everyone.

Right now, sent messages can be deleted only from the sender's end, not from the recipient's end.

The feature, which is officially called "Delete for Everyone" has also been widely referred to as "Recall" and "Revoke".

- Message inside a quoted message can not be recalled. Your recipients will still see the messages in their chat screen.

However, the reports indicate that the "delete for everyone" feature's rollout is slow.

WhatsApp loyalists are terming this as a revolutionary and much-needed step, as Skype and other popular messengers always had this option.

Independently, for Android clients, WhatsApp beta version 2.17.397 is presently out and it includes new emoticons.

There is also an additional caveat; the messages' content will disappear from within the chats, but deleted messages will likely remain in notification previews. After that, you'll want to select "Delete for everyone" so it disappears off both you and your recipient's phone.

In addition, senders will not be able to know if the message being recalled has been effective on the receiver's end.
