WhatsApp: it will be possible to delete old messages without time limit
WhatsApp will soon include a new feature for its users: the ability to delete a message for everyone without a time limit. Today it is only possible to delete recent messages.
During a WhatsApp conversation, you sometimes want to delete one of your messages so that no one can see it. It happens to use awkward wording or to make a little embarrassing joke that you immediately regret. WhatsApp will allow us to do so without any time limit.
It is the WABetaInfo site, as usual, which delivers the first details on this feature. Initially, it was possible to delete a message for everyone (it is also possible to delete a message just for yourself) within 7 minutes. This time was then reduced to one hour and eight minutes. WABetaInfo indicates that it is now possible to delete old messages more than two months old, with for example a screenshot which shows the manipulation on a conversation dating from last August 23rd.
WhatsApp allows you to delete old messages
The most astonishing thing is that WhatsApp has not communicated on the subject. The time limit has therefore been discreetly widened and for the moment, we don’t know until when exactly it is possible to delete a message. Is there even still a limit? Likewise, this is a beta version and it is possible that messages posted before the addition of this feature are ultimately not erasable. We do not know when this will happen to the general public. It may take a long time.

WhatsApp therefore continues to improve over the months via micro updates like this. Not long ago, it was reactions in the form of emojis that were spotted (not yet available to the general public) or the possibility of blocking your sensitive information from unwanted people. Recently, it is the picture-in-picture mode, which will allow you to enjoy content without having to leave a conversation, which has been talked about. Again, we are awaiting deployment.
