The new feature is not only applicable for text.

So when are you going to get, how will it work, what is the catch. all the questions answered.

The message contained in a quoted message. Back in January this year, a beta update to WhatsApp for Android also brought along the ability to edit sent messages, but we didn't hear about it later.

Finally WhatsApp Delete for everyone is rolling out with the latest beta v2.17.399.

If you cant wait and want the feature now, uninstalling and reinstalling may do the trick.

Let us know if the feature has been rolled out for you in WhatsApp since it hasn't been turned on for everyone just yet.

Although, WhatsApp is yet to announce the roll out of the new feature, few users have already figured out that the feature can work similar to how the Gmail Undo feature works.

Once the message has been deleted for both the parties the following things happen. What if the sender deletes the messages, but takes a screenshot of that before deletion?

"The server finally works and it successfully recalls the message".

6- In the new delete options, there's also an option of Delete for Me.

Who can access and the time limit to use the feature? However, it is not guaranteed to get you the feature then also and you will lose your chats also. In other words, you will have 7 minutes to recall the message.

WhatsApp gave a breakdown for how to delete sent messages in the iOS and Android app in an FAQ post on their website.

Right now, sent messages can be deleted only from the sender's end, not from the recipient's end. Alternatively, you can choose to stop sharing the data at any time, or to let the timer expire on its own. The feature enables users to delete messages from their phones, as well as the devices of other users engaged with them.

After that, you will not be able to delete it from the conversation.

"Delete for Me", as its name suggests, will see a wiped message removed from your history but continue to remain in the recipient's chat.
