With the constant updates being received by WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned company is reportedly working on extending the time limit for the ‘delete for everyone’ feature. The message delete feature for WhatsApp was initially introduced in 2017 and the ‘delete for everyone’ feature’s time limit was set to seven minutes and a few months later was increased to more than an hour. This feature lets users delete messages from personal and group chats in WhatsApp. Once a message is deleted, it is replaced by notification in the chat window stating This message was deleted.
WABetaInfo, reports that the time limit for the ‘delete for everyone’ feature may be increased to an indefinite period, up from the 4,096 seconds time limit introduced in 2018. The tracker also notes that since this feature is still under development, and should be taken with a pinch of salt until it arrives for beta testers. There is also no information on the release timeline for this upcoming feature. The time limit for the feature was set to seven minutes when the feature was first introduced in 2017 and then.
