WhatsApp is looking to extend the time limit for deleting sent messages for everyone

The latest update is for WhatsApp beta for Android (version

It enables users delete messages for up to 60 hours after they were sent

It protects you from deleting accidently sent messages

This feature comes in handy when you want to take back what you’ve said.

Or if there’s some factual error in your message and you want to rectify it

You can’t just delete the message for everyone whenever you want.

WhatsApp currently lets you do it within 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds

WhatsApp is now significantly extending the time limit to 60 hours

That’s 12 hours more than Telegram’s limit of 48 hours

This change was first spotted in development in February this year
