The embarrassing WhatsApp message can be deleted within the next two days.
You may now undelete a WhatsApp message for a maximum of 2 days and 12 hrs (60 hours in total), allowing you to undo an unintentionally transmitted chat even after business hours. It used to be that you could only do this for 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds.
In its tweet touting this feature, the business just specified "little over two days," leaving out the 12-hour portion.
The unsend option was first made available by WhatsApp in 2017 with a seven-minute time limit, but it was later extended to 1 hour and 8 minutes. However, with this new version, the firm has chosen a fairly peculiar time period of approximately two and a half days, contrary to WABetaInfo's prediction that the corporation would contemplate imposing a seven-day limit.
In contrast, the competing messaging software Telegram does not have a time limit on message deletion, allowing you to delete a chat even years after sending it. After unveiling the unsend functionality for iOS 16 at the Worldwide Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple is moving in the opposite direction. In the fourth developer beta of iOS 16 released last month, the firm lowered the time limit from fifteen min to two minutes.
Aside from preventing screenshots for "view-once communications," WhatsApp is also adding additional privacy options to its app, such as the ability to silence a group.
