WhatsApp to increase timeframe for delete message option

WhatsApp Android Lock Voice

As the name suggests, this feature basically makes it easy to record and send voice messages to other users. The latest one that has managed to hit the headlines is the locked recordings feature. Given that it is under testing, we can expect the feature to be rolled out to all the Android beta users by the end of March.

The Facebook-owned WhatsApp is consistently working on new features to improve the user experience of its instant messaging platform which is now used by over a billion people.

The report by WABetaInfo, a WhatsApp update tracking site reveals that v2.18.68, v2.18.70, and v.2.18.71 of WhatsApp beta for Android brings some really cool features. Previously on an Android smartphone to record a voice message, the user had to tap and hold the dedicated green mic button until the recording is completed.This was a bit annoying as sometimes a finger slip might result in an incomplete voice note getting delivered. After which, the iOS users had to just click on the voice record button and leave it, no hassle of holding the button for long. When done, simply click on the mic button again to stop recording and then send it. The feature will work in the same manner for Android as well.

WhatsApp's long-requested and only recently introduced Delete for Everyone feature looks set to get an update.

Keown pinpoints Arsenal player that has let Wenger down
It looks worse every time you see it and the fact that he didn't get a card is truly hard to believe. After Brighton defeat, Wenger added: "My worry is to get Arsenal winning football games".

Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete or unsent messages for everyone, WhatsApp said in its updated FAQ. And this is why the WhatsApp has now chose to extend the time limit of the feature. Last year, the messaging app introduced the Delete for Everyone feature and the user had to delete a sent message within 420 seconds or 7 minutes. It is expected to be released soon for the Android and iOS users.

Its only shortcoming, in the opinion of users, was the seven minute time limit.

The feature to delete sent messages was introduced by WhatsApp in November previous year.
