Whatsapp Now Allows You To Delete Messages After One Hour 1
WhatsApp just keeps improving with each passing day.


The “delete for everyone” or “revoke” feature was rolled out last year to allow people quickly delete a message after it has been sent.

This feature comes handy whenever you mistakenly send message to the wrong person or group or you sent something with errors.

Initially, you only have 7 minutes to delete message for everyone but after that, it can’t be deleted again but now whatsapp has extended the limit to 1 hour, 8 minutes. So now you have more time space to delete a mistakenly sent message or to revoke it.

You’ll recall that WhatsApp rolled out its most anticipated feature, ‘Delete for Everyone’, in 2017 that allowed over one billion users to revoke their messages in a private or group conversation.

Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete messages for everyone,” Facebook-owned WhatsApp had said in its updated FAQ.

As usual, WABetainfo has yet again revealed new updated feature. The most recent WhatsApp beta (v2.18.69) for Android 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.

As at the time of this report, the update is available for Android beta and would soon find its way to iOS and windows phone users.

Meanwhile, remember that 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.

However, there is a bug that WhatsApp is yet to fix. That’s whenever someone quotes your message, you can’t delete it again for everyone. No matter the time it was quoted.

It has become a habit of applications to receive functionality in a non-uniform manner, especially with regard to different versions for Android and iOS. Not being the exception to the rule, Spotify also receives functionality at different times in its various versions.

After being released for the Android version last May, Spotify for iOS received finally the popular “Sleep Timer” feature. That is, iPhone users can also fall asleep listening to their favorite music / podcast without any problem.

To use the “Sleep Timer” feature is very simple. After selecting the desired song, you will need to click on the “three dots” icon in the upper right corner and select the “Sleep Timer” option.

Google Photos New tool will help you keep albums organized

Google Photos remains one of my favorite apps, presenting itself as the perfect way to keep all your photos and videos organized in one place. In addition, they are accessible virtually anywhere and on any device.

As one of the most popular Google Apps, they continue to invest a lot of resources in developing and implementing new features. The latest addition will help you keep albums organized by making it easy to find what you’re really looking for.

A small detail that can save you a lot of time.

The new implementation may go unnoticed for many users, but it is no less important. In the albums tab, Google Photos will start displaying a new option, which allows you to organize your albums according to different conditions.

For now, at this early stage, you will be able to keep albums organized by what has the most recent photo, which you modified less recently or simply in alphabetical order. Most likely, Google will continue to develop this new implementation to make it even easier to find the album you want.

This new implementation is coming first hand to Android smartphone users and is not yet available for iOS or the web version. However, it is important to note that it is being launched through Google’s servers. That is, it will not reach all users at the same time.

In order to receive the new implementation, you need to have the latest version of the App, so make sure you don’t have any updates available.

Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed that once reaching all Android users, the new feature will eventually also be available for iOS and the web version of Google Photos.
