But there is a little adjustment as sported by WABetainfo on a new updated feature. The most recent WhatsApp beta (v2.18.69) for Andr oid now gives users up to 4,096 seconds (68 minutes and 16 seconds ) to delete a message for everyone in a chat. Currently, in stable builds.

This release is presently available for Android beta and would soon find its way to iOS and windows phone users. WhatsApp had been working on this feature for almost a year.

Messages that the user successfully deletes for everyone will be replaced with “This message was deleted” in the recipients’ chats.

Similarly, if a person happens to see “This message was deleted” in a chat, it means that the sender deleted their message for everyone.
