With WhatsApp, you now have two days instead of 68 minutes to delete a chat message.

For its users, WhatsApp has added numerous new features. The capability to delete unwanted or mistakenly sent messages is one such feature. Currently, users have 68 minutes to delete these messages. This time limit has now been extended to more than two days by the instant messaging service owned by Meta. Rethinking your message? The business asks in a post on Twitter announcing the new time limit. After you hit send, you will now have just over 2 days to delete your chat messages.

Users of WhatsApp will actually have two days and twelve hours to delete their messages. Users have the option of deleting a message only for themselves or for all recipients. One can delete specific messages they have sent to an individual or group chat by selecting the “Delete messages for everyone” option. Messages that you delete for yourself remain on the user’s device only. It has no bearing on the chats with your recipients. The messages will continue to appear on your recipients’ chat screens.

Here’s how to delete WhatsApp messages.

Before deleting a WhatsApp message, one must be aware of the following:

– Both you and the recipients of the message must be using the most recent version of WhatsApp for the message to be successfully deleted for everyone.

– Prior to deletion or if the deletion fails, recipients may still be able to view your message.

– If deleting for everyone failed, you won’t be informed.

-Even after the message is deleted from the WhatsApp chat, recipients who are using WhatsApp for iOS might still have the media you sent saved to their Photos.

A few iPhone beta users have begun receiving the status reaction feature from WhatsApp. By using one of eight different emojis—Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes, Face with Tears of Joy, Face with Open Mouth, Crying Face, Folded Hands, Clapping Hands, Party Popper, and Hundred Points—users are able to respond to WhatsApp status updates.
