WhatsApp Messenger which is a freeware and cross-platform instant messaging service for smartphones uses the Internet to make voice calls, one to one video calls; send text messages, images, GIF, and videos, has just recently and finally added a new feature that allows you to delete from you to everyone in a group as opposed to the older version that only allows you delete as a sender from your own end.
The feature is still being released, so is not available to all therefore there need not be any rush or worry. Whatsapp on its company’s frequently asked Questions explained how this new works and what is expected of it saying ” To delete messages for everyone – Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you have sent to either a group or an individual chat. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or if the message you sent contains a mistake.
Messages you successfully delete for everyone will be replaced with “This message was deleted” in your recipients’ chats (*). Similarly, if you see “This message was deleted” in a chat, it means that the sender deleted their message for everyone.
You can only delete messages for everyone for up to seven minutes after sending. Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete messages for everyone.”
Therefore the major prerequisite to this new feature is that all active users the must have the latest version of WhatsApp downloaded and installed on their smart phones or communication gadgets which for the time being it appears to be a deal breaker or NO/NO but as time goes on and more users have access to the updates the feature will become more acceptable, more available and in use then the beauty of being able to retract wrong messages will apply. And frequent users of the WhatsApp Messenger will concor that this feature is long due.
