WhatsApp for iPhone has just received a new update that brings the instant messaging application for Apple’s mobile platform up to version 2.17.71 and also brings all users the ability to delete messages sent to other users. An update that also arrived a few hours ago at WhatsApp for Android.
An update that came through the App Store and caught all WhatsApp users for iPhone by surprise because nowhere is there any warning that the feature of deleting messages is coming. In any case, it appears that the deployment of the update has started and that all users can now use this feature. Let’s see how it works exactly.
Deleting messages in WhatsApp for iPhone
This deleting messages sent to other users is really simple, the first step will be to simply click on the message we have sent and want to delete. In the displayed menu we will go to the “Delete” option and the next step is to click on the “Delete for all” option. This way we remove the message on the same server, so it will be impossible for anyone to read it.
We must remember that this feature of deleting messages in WhatsApp for iPhone can only be used for the first 7 minutes after we have sent the messages. It must also be said that our interlocutor will receive a notification with the text “The message has been deleted”, so you will know that we have deleted the message, but not its content. A new option that was long awaited by all users.
