Whatsapp is rapidly replicating this year for its application. One of the most notable features to be presented on the forum this year was the delete, which allowed senders to remove messages sent to them in the same way as the undiscovered option in Instagram. However, a deadline was set to be removed, which was initially 7 minutes. In the following update, the deadline for this increased to one hour, eight minutes and sixteen seconds. Now Whatsapp has brought a new update which restricts the removal of the sender’s side.
After having a tussle with WhatsApp founder Jan Koum, Facebook seems to be integrating the platform fully into the Facebook ecosystem which consists of other applications like Facebook and Instagram. However, this new update about the “recipient limit” has been brought to fruition to limit the deletion of messages by senders who were possibly misusing the functionality.
New Recipient Limit
According to a report by WABetaInfo, Whatsapp has updated “Recipient Borders” to remove messages from the recipient’s chat. This means that the recipient of the message must receive the canceled request within 13 hours, eight minutes and 16 seconds to delete the message. If the recipient does not receive a request for cancellation, the message will not be deleted.
Previous One Hour Limit to Stay
With this new update, users should keep in mind that the last limit of one hour, eight minutes and sixteen seconds will be in this way and the sender will be able to delete the first messages of this time frame. However, if the cancellation request fails, the new protocol will be applied to the sender to delete messages during that time.
People of WABetaInfo have said that this update will help tackle the issue of senders who have been removing messages for a long time. It is still unclear, even though the update is pushed to the whole user base or it is being rotated in pieces. This new update is a server-side so people do not have to check individual updates.
