Major update in WhatsApp's 'delete all' feature for delivered messages

WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp has updated the "Recipient limit" to restrict deletion of a message if the recipient didn't receive its revoke request within 13 hours, eight minutes, and 16 seconds due to any reason, even if the phone was inactive.

The new update is being rolled out understandably to prevent WhatsApp users from deleting older delivered messages that they could do by tinkering with mobile system settings. One of the most notable features which were introduced on the platform this year was the delete for everyone option, which allowed senders to delete their sent messages similarly to the unsend option in Instagram. However, the company later increased this time limit to 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds. "You can still delete a message for everyone within 1h, 8m, 16s as long as the recipient will receive your revoke request within 13h, 8m, 16s", the platform claimed.

It is unclear whether the new change has already been implemented for all WhatsApp users or it will take some time to reach the entire WhatsApp user base.

Whatsapp has now made it mandatory that the recipient also receives the message to be able to delete it from everyone's WhatsApp account.

Trump visited the kingdom on his first overseas trip as president and has touted arms sales to Saudi Arabia. By close , it had recovered some losses, ending down 3.5 percent and losing $16.5 billion of market value.

It is not clear whether the new "recipient limit" will apply if the recipient quickly switches off the phone and keeps the device off for over 14 hours or switches off the internet immediately after.

Initially, the time limit to delete messages was set at seven minutes, later it was increased to 1 hour 8 minutes and 16 seconds. But now the company is making a big change into this widely-popular feature.

WhatsApp introduced the "Delete for Everyone" feature late a year ago.

WhatsApp is expected to roll out the feature along with the stickers update in the coming days.
