You Will Soon Revoke, Edit and Delete WhatsApp Messages

Almost everyone has wished that they could delete a hastily sent text message at some point. Now, messaging app WhatsApp is reportedly adding the ability to do just that.

However, an update to the Facebook-owned app will only let users recall a message before it has been read by the recipient.

WhatsApp is planning a new update that will let app users recall or revoke sent text messages, as well as edit texts after they have been sent.
WhatsApp may soon let users revoke, recall or edit messages that have already been delivered to contacts within the chat app.
The feature would allow users to edit – or completely revoke – messages sent by accident, as well any texts with cringe-inducing typos or content.

And that could save users a lot of embarrassment.

Those with access to the early beta release say the feature is disabled by default, meaning users have to know of its existence, and seek it out within the settings menu to enable it.

Pressing and holding on a sent message within the iOS version of WhatsApp now includes two new options in the small menu.

Unfortunately, the ability to revoke your message will only work when the recipient hasn’t seen the text.WhatsApp can currently delete messages from your own device, however the deleted messages will remain visible to the recipients.
