Sending messages on WhatsApp has been possible for a number of years.

Initially, it was only possible to send text messages in the first eight minutes.

And before today’s update, you would have about an hour to “recall” a message.

But the latest WhatsApp apartment Upgrade extends the time limit to a whopping two days and 12 hours.

Other apps – including Meta-in possession Instagram – have no time limit for not sending messages.

WhatsApp’s Delete For Everyone is getting closer and closer to that reality.

It means you have a lot more time to consider whether or not you want a text to stay on WhatsApp indefinitely.

There are many reasons to recall messages.

Perhaps you messaged the wrong person, shared a typo-strewn letter, or sent a drunk text message that you deeply regret in the cold light of day.

Whatever the reason, you can now withdraw an SMS within about 60 hours.

To do this, go into the chat and hold your finger on the message.

Now click on “Delete” and select “Delete for everyone”.

Pressing “Delete for me” doesn’t retract the message – it just removes it for you.

Placeholder text remains in the chat to indicate that some text has been removed.

There’s another catch: the feature requires everyone to be using the latest version of WhatsApp.

That means a message you didn’t send might not actually get deleted for people using older versions of the app.

Worse, you’re not told it’s the case.

So if you’re very cautious, try to stick to the one-hour window for a few weeks – until more people have updated.

WhatsApp started allowing users to unsubscribe from text messages back in 2017.

Originally, users only had eight minutes to retrieve a message.

But in 2018, the grace period was extended to one hour.
