WhatsApp May Add Feature That Let's You Unsend A Message


WhatsApp is planning to add a feature that lets you cancel an already sent message, meaning that the receiver doesn't get to see it. I think we all have had our bad moments.  More especially :

That awkward moment you realize that you sent the message to the wrong person

WhatsApp won't be the first to add this feature to their messaging app. The feature has been available on Gmail and Instagram.

The fact that most of us use chat apps on mobile devices a lot more than email these days means the risk of sending the wrong text is higher.

WhatsApp  is reportedly working on a feature that would let you retrieve sent messages.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp beta version iOS contains a new Revoke option which will let the sender revoke a message before it’s delivered to the recipient.

This could come in handy if you sent a message to  the wrong person.

From how it looks , you'll have to tap a message that you just sent to open up a menu and then select the new Revoke option from that menu. The message will then be deleted — check out the images in the tweet below.

Revoking messages feature can also delete photos and videos in the phone of the recipient (*now*!! I don't know if this will change)

I don't really know how fast you’ll have to act before it’s too late, but it’s likely that you’ll have to be quick about it. Even in Gmail you only have a just few seconds to unsend a message.

The same source claims that the sender can still revoke messages that are seen by the recipient, which would let you remove some of the things you said in a conversation, and even delete pictures that you may have sent to someone.

And what's my reaction to this? :Well. The GIF says it all.
