Delete for Everyone (recall message) feature finally comes to WhatsApp

WhatsApp's "Delete for Everyone" feature has been in the works for quite some time. And now the feature is rolling out to WhatsApp's Android, iOS and Windows Phone apps.

The Delete for Everyone feature lets you recall/delete message sent to the recipient's phone, in both private and group conversation. It works for any message type including text messages, voice messages, images, videos, files, location and more. The feature will come in handy when you send a message to the wrong person.

You can delete a sent message simply by tapping the Trash button, which now shows two delete options "Delete for Me" and "Delete for Everyone". The Delete for Everyone option will erase the message you sent to your friends and loved ones. 

It's worth mentioning that you'll get a seven minutes window to delete the message, and after that recalling it will be impossible. Also, in order for messages to be successfully deleted for everyone, both you and your recipient must be using the latest version of WhatsApp.

The recalled message will be also deleted in the notifications center (on iOS) of the recipient at the exact moment you have revoked it. On Android the message will be updated with the “This message was deleted for everyone” text. That said, quoted message and Broadcast List doesn't support deleting messages at the moment.

The Delete for Everyone feature will be added be added automatically, as it is a server side roll out, and you don't need to update the app from the Play Store. If you have not received the feature yet, you can download and install the latest WhatsApp beta from APKmirror.
