WhatsApp testing feature to REVOKE messages you sent by mistake

Posted on


If you’ve ever sent a drunk or mistaken text over WhatsApp then you’ll be glad the service is considering a new option to correct poor life decisions. Mashable reports that WhatsApp is testing a feature that will allow you to revoke a message once it has been sent.

Twitter account that regularly tracks new WhatsApp features, discovered the addition in recent beta copies of WhatsApp.


It’s not immediately clear how long a WhatsApp user will have to revoke the message, but the screenshots appear to suggest you’ll be able to revoke a message as long as the recipient hasn’t viewed it. A revoke option appears next to a message with a single tick, WhatApp’s indicator that it has been sent to the server, but not delivered to or viewed by the recipient.

A double tick indicates a message has been delivered (possibly with a notification) but not read, and it’s unlikely WhatsApp users will be able to revoke these messages if they’ve generated a notification on a recipient device.
