Popular chat messaging app, WhatsApp is said to be working on increasing the time limit for its Delete for Everyone feature.
Currently, WhatsApp allows users to delete any messages within one hour, eight minutes, and 16 seconds of its sending. However, it is working on extending the time limit to two days and 12 hours. This will buy users more time to delete messages sent accidentally.
Meanwhile, WABetaInfo, a well-known WhatsApp beta tracker reports WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.22.410 includes the Delete for Everyone feature time limit extension to 2 days and 12 hours.
Back in November 2021, WhatsApp was planning to increase the time limit to more than a week. However, this move doesn’t seem logical as most users don’t want to delete messages they sent a week before.
Additionally, there is no clarity on whether WhatsApp will bring alterations to the feature before rolling it out to the general public.
Besides the time limit extension of the Delete for Everyone feature, WhatsApp is also working on WhatsApp Communities that would let group admins add and manage several WhatsApp groups from one place.
According to a screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp for Android beta version 220.127.116.11 includes WhatsApp communities that let group admins add and manage the group from a single place.
Moreover, the Community section will allow group admins to concurrently send new announcements to group members.
Both the features are still under development, as of now, there are no details about the release date.
