WhatsApp messages allow you to delete your message during the first hour
This is not something new in whatsapp messenger, but what new is that the time limit of deleting your messenge has now extended to 1 hour mark.
Before the changes, this is possible for up to seven minutes after a message has been sent. The new updates now allow you to delete the message up to 60 minutes after a message has been sent out. Initially, whatsapp only allow you to delete the message if they’ve not actually read it yet.
To be accurate, this time limit is being extended to 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds, at least on iOS. But both Android and iPhone users can actually delete WhatsApp messages after an even longer period of time.
WhatsApp doesn’t have a secret conversations option. This additional time could help facilitate more temporary conversations on WhatsApp.
