In WhatsApp Beta the ‘Delete for Everone’ feature shows that users will soon be able to delete sent messages for 1 hour, it seems that this update will soon be available in the stable version.

This ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature was first launched by WhatsApp in November 2017, when it allowed users to delete the send message within seven minutes. However, this time duration was found to less by most users. However, it is yet to be understood, if the 1-hour delete duration would be of any use or not. I mean, we practically carry our mobiles everywhere we go; sometimes we also carry it to the washroom. And, WhatsApp messages are immediately and instantly checked by most people.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp beta version 2.18.69 allows users to delete the send message within 68 minutes and 16 seconds. The increased time sounds a bit random, and does not yet makes any sense, it seems at least better compared to the 420 seconds or 7 minutes.

As per the ongoing reports, WhatsApp beta version 2.18.69 will also go on to add the ability to forward stickers to other chats in 2.18.67 beta. The 2.18.69 beta also comes with a bug which causes the app to crash whenever the users are trying to send the GIFs. Since this report has come out; WhatsApp has gone on to release two more new updates especially for their Beta program, with version number 2.18.70 and 2.18.71. The beta version 2.18.70 fixed the issue o sending GIFs, while the other beta version 2.18.71 brings a new addition to the voice note sending icon in the chat window.

Users will now be able to record a portion of their voice note and lock it ensuring that it is saved in case the user accidentally let go of the recording button. In order to use this particular feature, users will need to tap on the ‘mic’ icon in the chat after 0.5 seconds, and WhatsApp will show an all-new pop-up UI element, presenting a locked microphone button.

Another minor addition that you will get to see is the ability to view the size of a specific sticker pack before downloading it. However, we do not know when will the stable feature roll out, but we hope WhatsApp does send a new update soon.
