Whatsapp is testing the new feature in its messaging app on the Web version. In an earlier post we mentioned this new ‘Unsend’ Feature and we stress on how handy and awesome Whatsapp will be personally for some of us after this update is released for Android and iOS.
As well as the ‘Unsend’ message button, WABetaInfo’s inside information also suggests the app might soon introduce an ‘edit message’ feature for when you’ve had time to reflect on how harsh/embarrassingly flirty/unnecessarily or too direct your first message was and might prompt you to want to go back in and change it.
It’s likely, that if this edit message function does become available for widespread use, the message would be visibly listed as ‘edited’ in the same way an altered Instagram caption or Facebook status is when a user makes changes. Not Cool !!!
Whatsapp Unsend Feature
According to @WABetaInfo, Whatsapp owned by Facebook Inc is testing the feature in Whatsapp Web 0.2.4077 beta version where the new uppdate will allow users to use the unsend feature within a 5 minute time frame.
