WhatsApp extends message deletion window beyond an hour

EXPRESS NEWSPAPERSYou get a few minutes to delete a message once it's been sent
The "Delete for Everyone" feature was introduced by WhatsApp previous year in November which allowed the users to delete a sent message within 420 seconds or 7 minutes. To be precise, one hour 8 minutes and 16 seconds, beyond which, the user can not erase messages.
Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you have sent to either a group or an individual chat.
WhatsApp doesn't have a secret conversations option like rivals where it creates a temporary conversation that isn't stored on sender or recipient devices. At the time of the launch, it was mentioned that users only had seven minutes to revoke the sent message.
WaBetaInfo reports that Facebook-owned chat company is secretly working on a feature called "Block revoke request" that would be useful in keeping a check on the misuse of Delete for Everyone feature.
Now it has been noticed, in the latest WhatsApp for iOS update (2.18.31) that the measly seven minutes time for second thoughts has been extended significantly. When the user deletes a message for everyone, WhatsApp sends a new message to the recipient. If now deletes message with only date of less than 24 hours.
WhatsApp has chose to stick to 24 hours as the reference time period here to ensure that there is ample time for the recipient or recipients in case of a group chat, to receive the revoke request.
Melrose sweetens offer for GKN
As a result, shareholders in the FTSE 100 company will end up owning 60 percent of Melrose and receive £1.4 billion in cash. Responding to Melrose's new offer, GKN said it it is now evaluating the terms of the revised bid.
According to the report, the "Block revoke request", ensures that the feature will now check if the message saved in the database, which is to be deleted for everyone, is less than 24 hours old when applying this request.
Recipients may see your message before it's deleted or if deletion was not successful.
