No need to panic now, as you’ll soon be able to recall your drunk or mistakenly sent text messages on WhatsApp – a much-demanded feature.
Recall Unread Messages Sent Mistakenly
The most popular instant messaging service is reportedly testing the ability to edit or completely recall messages that have already been sent, allowing you to edit or delete a message from your friend’s phone if it is yet to be read.
If so, the update will add “Revoke” and “Edit” options for messages with gray tick marks that have not yet been viewed by the recipient. Blue ticks on WhatsApp represents that the recipient has seen your sent messages.
If the sender clicks on the Revoke option, the message from the recipient inbox will be replaced with “Sender revoked the message,” as shown in the screenshots, telling the recipient that the sender is keeping something away from them.
However, the Facebook-owned messaging service has not officially announced the edit and recall feature, so it is unclear if or when these features will make its way to the popular messaging app’s stable release.
Track Your Friends Location In Realtime
WhatsApp’s Live Location Tracking feature will allow users to enable other members in a group to track their location in real time.
Other upcoming features being tested in the beta version of WhatsApp include the ability to reply to status messages, as well as shaking your smartphone within a conversation to contact WhatsApp and report spam.
