Ever drunk texted an ex, or accidentally wrongly sexted a mommies chatgroup?
Well, now Whatsapp allowed you to delete your messages… provided if you are in time for it. According to Whatsapp, pressing delete on your message will replace the original text with “This message was deleted”.
To delete a message –
- Open WhatsApp
- Go to the chat with the message to be deleted
- Tap and hold the message
- Choose Delete from the menu
- Optionally, select multiple messages to delete several items at once
- Tap Delete > Delete for Everyone
But remember, the time limit is 7 minutes. For those with butter fingers, once you exceed the time limit, the message will be there permanently. And of course, there is a possibility that the recipient will see your message before the deletion takes place.
Anyway, fingers-crossed for the next update!
