New Whatsapp Update brings new stickers, icons and extends 'Delete For Everyone' duration to 1 Hour

In November 2017, the popular free instant messaging app, WhatsApp received an update that allowed users to delete a sent message within seven minutes after it has been sent. While the feature was a welcome development but yet, many users seem not to be happy over the 7 minutes duration period. To eliminate this, Whatsapp has now decided to extend the 7 minute duration - to over one hour with the new beta version of the smartphone messenger.

The current beta versions of WhatsApp have the version numbers 2.18.69 and 2.18.71. They are currently being tested by selected Android users. If the test is successful and the new features included in the beta are well received, the update will be officially rolled out for Android and iOS. With the update, the deletion period is extended significantly - to exactly 4096 seconds. That's 68 minutes and 16 seconds. Enough time to think about retrieving a message.

Delete WhatsApp message: That's how it works
In order to be able to delete an already sent WhatsApp message, all chat participants should have a current version of the messenger installed on their smartphone. Otherwise, retrieving the message may fail. Deleting works in both individual and group chats. It is independent of whether a message has already been read by the recipient or not. For this, the sender of the message must keep this pressed until a trash can icon appears. Even if the deletion is officially only possible within the first seven minutes, with a trick you can already delete your messages after hours.

Icons and Stickers: Further changes in the update
However, the changes include not only the more than one hour extended deletion period of messages. WhatsApp also delivers newly designed stickers and icons with the update. In addition, before downloading a sticker package, you can clearly see how big the file is.

Sending animated GIFs within a conversation should now work better. The developers react to user feedback. For some users, the messenger crashed as soon as the animated pictures were sent. The recording of voice messages should also be more convenient. For this WhatsApp introduces a new recording button with wipe function to unlock. You no longer need to hold the button down the entire length of the shot.
