This feature is not digestible for most people and they think that it’s just a dream. It’s because they have come through way of Emails, Mobile messages, Chats .etc. where deleting a sent message is never possible.
If we post a wrong message in Twitter or Facebook we could edit it, because actual message is not downloaded into a mobile phone. It just stays as a website and user will be able to view only messages that it is actually present in website. In case of Facebook messenger this is not possible. If a chat message is sent, then it cannot be edited or deleted. WhatsApp is planning to come up with a life saving update through which it will be possible to edit and delete messages which are send from a mobile to another.
Is it restricted unread messages or even to read messages was main doubt of people who read this news. If editing or deleting of even read messages is possible then it will be a great feature. As per official announcement by WABetaInfo, Revoking messages feature is being implemented in it’s beta testing, Through this feature it will be possible to delete messages that are already read by recipient. We mentioned that Recall Whatsapp messages feature is a life saving one, Why ?. Recently there are many news reports coming about problems happening because of wrong messages sent to contacts in phone mistakenly.
