WhatsApp tests option to recall sent messages

Friday 27 October 2017 | 11:49 CET | News
WhatsApp is testing a feature for users to withdraw unread messages. The recipient will not be able to read the content of the message, but will receive a notification that a sent message was deleted. Users can recall a message within seven minutes of sending, and both the sender and the recipient must have the latest version of WhatsApp installed.
