Whatsapp latest update delete for everyone time extended

Regular updates for mobile apps are sometimes not liked by the app user as it takes a lot of time to get used to them. When a user understands a new feature and gets used to it, there comes a new update for the same feature.

But this time, the World’s largest messaging app “WhatsApp” has introduced a new feature which will be liked by most of the app users.

WhatsApp introduced the most wanted feature that allows the user to delete a sent message in October last year. Initially, the users were allowed to use the “Delete for Everyone” feature for any text message during the 7 minutes time after they sent the message.

According to, the Android users who have installed WhatsApp version 2.18.69 can delete the sent messages even after 4096 seconds which is almost 68 minutes and 16 seconds.

As per the reports, this new feature will be available for only the app users using the said version of WhatsApp and it is only for Android users. Those who have an iPhone in use will not be able to delete the sent message after 7 minutes.

The same source also claimed that there will be a WhatsApp sticker feature to be introduced very soon and the idea is taken from the Snapchat. But this feature will also be available for the latest version of WhatsApp messenger and the recipient should also have installed that version on their Android device.
