WhatsApp will update deadline for messages to be revoked

Launched about a year ago, the delete sent messages of Whatsapp It can be a lifesaver when you miss the conversation or the group and end up sending something to the wrong place. Although quite simple after all, you simply select and delete the message, this option has some internal features that you may not know.

More specifically, the time the sender has to clear a message of 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds is after a change that took effect last March. However, WhatsApp updates another deadline, where the recipient may receive possible revoked messages if they are disconnected for more than 13 hours, 8 minutes and 16 seconds. Confused? I explain.

For whatever reason, there are people who are not connected to WhatsApp all day. Among those who travel or do not have internet access all the time, many can spend more than 13 hours without connecting to the messaging application.

In those cases where the person is disconnected and therefore unable to receive messages, requests to delete messages must reach the recipient within 13 hours; otherwise the deleted message will be displayed. The information was brought by WABetaInfo, which has access to updates and new messenger features.

Also according to the site, the feature will be implemented to prevent users able to modify the system (modded users) can delete messages sent weeks, months, or even years ago.


WhatsApp updated the ?Recipient Limit.? What does this mean? If you delete a message for everyone but the recipient will not receive the revocation request within 1pm, 8m, 16s (perhaps because the phone was deactivated), the message ** will not be revoked.

This is a protection against modded users who revoked messages sent weeks, months, and years ago.

You can still delete a message for everyone at 1h, 8m, 16s as long as the recipient receives your revocation request at 13h, 8m, 16s.

It is not yet known when the feature will be effectively implemented, but it will work on both iOS and Android. It is said that this deadline already exists and that it is 25 hours for recipients to receive requests for deleted messages, but we are unable to confirm this information.
