WHATSAPP is set to roll out a new feature that will enable ‘group admin’ to delete messages for everyone.
The instant messaging app is planning to release a series of new features to enhance its user interface.
The update will allow group admins to delete any message for everyone, according to WABetInfo.
If you ever find yourself regretting a message you've sent on WhatsApp in a chat with one other, the messaging app already has a handy feature to save your bacon.
You can actually delete a sent messages for a limited time, even if it's a group chat – allowing you to unsend a text that may get you in trouble.
WhatsApp is among the world's most private messaging services, shielding your texts from snoopers using end-to-end encryption.
Also in the future update, the U.S. messaging app will show a list of everyone who has left a group chat.
It means anyone in the group can see all of the "past participants", making it harder than ever to slip out of a WhatsApp group quietly.
The feature will also mean there's a record of your participation in a group – even if you'd rather not be associated with it any longer.
The feature isn't live yet, but was spotted in development on the WhatsApp beta by the sleuths at WABetaInfo.
