Last year in November 2017 the biggest social messaging application introduced a feature which every user was waiting for, after using the feature Whatsapp users started asking for more minutes on to delete for everyone.
The Social Media giant has finally heard the pleas of the consumers and will soon update its ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature to let users delete the sent messages within a longer duration of time. The time slot to perform this deletion operation was very short at just 7-minutes after you hit the send button, a lot of users again requested the messaging giant to increase the duration to delete a message.
The good news is that, according to the sources, the WhatsApp beta version 2.18.69 allows users to delete messages within 4096 seconds or 68 minutes and 16 seconds of the message being sent. While the increased number does sound a little random, it is a vast improvement as compared to 420 seconds or seven minutes deadline earlier. The Time increase is expected to be rolled out in the coming 2 or 3 weeks. There are a lot of speculations that the WhatsApp beta version 2.18.69 also adds the ability to forward stickers to other chats in the 2.18.67 beta. The 2.18.69 beta also comes with a bug which causes the app to crash when the user tries to send GIFs.
It is also reported earlier about Whatsapp taking measures to stop fake news spreading over WhatsApp by limiting the number of times, you forward it. And now along with that Whatsapp is also developing a new feature that will allow the receiver to see the source of that forwarded messages as seen on the version 2.18.67.
