  • WhatsApp is rolling out the Delete for Everyone (Recall) feature for all users! | WABetaInfo

WhatsApp users need to wait for the availability of the updated version of the chat app.

According WaBetaInfo, WhatsApp users will now be able to recall the wrongly sent texts.

To delete a message, open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you want to delete. Delete for everyone will only work within 7 minutes of sending the message. The feature allows users to "Delete for everyone, ' while posting group messages within seven minutes of its being sent".

A while back we told you about WhatsApp's ability to revoke sent messages in its beta version.

After you have deleted the message, it will be replaced with "This message was deleted" on the recipient's end. It is giving you the power to delete or recall that embarrassing and erroneous message that you might send occasionally. You can also select multiple messages to delete at once.

To delete a message that has already sent to someone within seven minutes, simply long press on the message and a delete option will appear from the menu.

There's also no built-in mechanism to notify you if deleting for everyone failed for any reason.


WhatsApp unsend function, which is officially called "Delete for Everyone" has been in development for months, and is finally being rolled out to users. After that, tap on "Delete For Everyone". It also works on WhatsApp web.

The feature is rolling out to all users right now.

1- It is important to note that the Delete For Everyone or in other words message recall is going to be available for Android and iPhone users. The all-new WhatsApp Beta 2.17.397 brings new emojis like star eyes, swearing face, vomiting face, shushing face, and more to the list.

It will then find the message, which will be correctly revoked, provided the recipients are using the latest version of WhatsApp.

It's been one of the biggest troubles facing instant messaging since it began: what happens if you wish you'd never sent that text?

Participants in a group conversation will receive a message saying "This message was deleted" to alert them of the change.
