WhatsApp will allow you to delete messages up to more than an hour after sending them

In October 2017, WhatsApp finally enabled one of the features that most users wanted: deleting messages. However, this has a very short time limit, but that is about to change.

In a next update to WhatsApp Android app, as reported in WaBetaInfo after analyzing the new beta, the messaging platform will increase the time limit to delete messages from 420 seconds (or 7 minutes) to 4,096 seconds (or 68 minutes and 16 seconds).

In other words, now you will have more than one hour to delete those messages that you regret, crossing your fingers because the person who received them has not read them.

The function will be available first in Android in some future updates, but later it will also come to iOS.
