WhatsApp is set to launch a new feature that will allow users “revoke” sent messages.


The newest version of WhatsApp, which will be released within the next few days, will allow almost a billion users who regret sending a certain message to someone to do something about it.

Right now, you can only delete sent messages at a local level. So if you make an embarrassing typo or say something regrettable, you can remove it at your end, but the recipient is still able to see it.

Like the Blackberry messenger, WhatsApp users could be able to legitimately redact or edit a message that has already travelled through cyberspace.


This feature has already been implemented by WhatsApp’s competitors such as Telegram and Skype.

Even Gmail allows users to recall emails that have already been sent.
