WhatsApp extends Delete for All message time limit
EXPRESS NEWSPAPERSYou get a few minutes to delete a message once it's been sent
12 March, 2018, 13:58
Originally introduced in October, the WhatsApp "delete for everyone" used to only allow you to delete messages up to seven minutes after you sent them. With this, iPhone and iPad (LTE) users will be able to delete unintended messages from group chats after more than an hour. The time frame that the chat app earlier gave was 7 minutes and it recently got updated to 1 hour 8 minutes and 16 seconds.
The latest version of the WhatsApp beta app can be found in the Store here. Now, it seems that the popular messaging app is planning of rolling out another feature "Block Revoke Request".
Since WhatsApp introduced the "Delete for Everyone" feature back in November 2017, the recipient can understand that a message has been deleted as there is a prompt in its place with the "This message has been deleted" tag.
Nevertheless, having a grace period of one hour can prove beneficial especially to those who want to erase past messages that may be misconstrued or incriminating. When the recipient received this particular message contained the revoke request, WhatsApp checked if the ID of the message was present in the database and directly deleted it. It then checks the date related information of the message saved in the database. This ensures that nobody can tamper with the feature to delete messages for everyone. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp's "Block revoke request" feature will quietly add some protection to prevent misuse of the "Delete for Everyone" feature. Well it's not quite as random it might first appear - it's the same as 4,096 seconds, an eightfold increase on the previous limit of 8 minutes and 32 seconds (or 512 seconds).
