You can now unsend WhatsApp messages - here's how

SHARE:

WhatsApp is rolling out a much-awaited feature that will allow users to take back a message after they have already sent it.

WhatsApp, the mobile messaging app thatFacebook acquired for $19 billion in February 2014, is now rolling out the ability to "unsend" messages just in case you wrote a mistake. This feature is being added to the Android, iOS and Windows Phone versions of the app. Messages can be deleted in individual and groups chats, but there are several limitations.

When you "unsend" a message, the recipient will see a post that says: “This message was deleted.” This means the recipient will know that a message was deleted, but they will not know what it said. The "unsend" feature works for attachments like photos, videos, GIFs, voice messages, etc.[post_ads]

To "unsend" a message on WhatsApp, you simply have to push down on it in the conversation and select the trash can icon from the menu. Then you have to tap on “Delete for everyone” to recall the message. After tapping on that option, the message will disappear on your device and the recipient’s phone. Plus it will be removed from the Notification Center of the recipient as well. Tapping on "Delete for Me" just removes the message from your phone, but does not have any effect on your recipients' chats. And it’s also worth mentioning that you can "unsend" multiple messages. Messages have to be deleted within 7 minutes of being sent for it to work.
Another limitation is that the sender and the recipient are required to have the latest version of the WhatsApp app downloaded on their devices. “Recipients may see your message before it's deleted or if deletion was not successful,” warned WhatsApp in an FAQ page. “You will not be notified if deleting for everyone was not successful.”

In July, WhatsApp said that it hit the 1 billion daily active user milestone and 55 billion messages, 4.5 billion photos and 1 billion videos are sent per day. Earlier this month, WhatsApp added the ability to share your location in real-time with family and friends — which is found in the “Location” menu within the attach button. And rumor has it that WhatsApp will be adding a group voice call feature in the near future.[post_ads_2]

WhatsApp has been testing the "unsend" feature over the last several months. It appears to be rolling out gradually as I do not have access to it yet. But I will update this article when I have access to it.

What are your thoughts about the ability to "unsend" messages on WhatsApp? Do you think this feature will be useful for you? Please leave a comment!
