WhatsApp may give its users a 5-minute window to revoke messages sent mistakenly.
According to WABetaInfo, a fan site that tests new WhatsApp features early, the mobile messaging platform has moved closer towards introducing a ‘Recall’ feature.
With this feature, the users will be able to revoke or unsend texts, images, videos, GIFs, documents, quoted messages and even status replies within a five-minute window, The Independent reported on Tuesday.
The messaging app will enable ‘Recall’ in version “2.17.30+” of the app. The current version of WhatsApp is 2.17.190.
“WhatsApp has added in beta the possibility to edit messages that you already sent. It is actually disabled by default and it’s under development,” an earlier WABetaInfo’s tweet read.
The users will be able to edit only recent messages and not the old ones.
With 1.2 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp is available in more than 50 different languages around the world and in 10 Indian languages.
WhatsApp currently has 200 million monthly active users in India.
The Facebook-owned platform is also thought to be considering bringing back the old contacts list that disappeared with the arrival of ‘Status,’ but only for iPhone users.
