New WhatsApp Android Beta extends time for “delete for everyone” message

According to the information, WhatsApp has now released a new beta update through the Google Play store. This beta update clearly indicates that the company is currently working on a new version of “delete for everyone”, which changes the time limit for this feature.

Every Whatsapp user is very well aware of “delete for everyone” in which users can delete messages within a certain period of time. Four years ago, when Whatsapp released this possibility, the limit was set to 7 minutes, this means that if you send a message 8 minutes ago, you won’t be able to delete it for everyone.

After a while, WhatsApp set the new limit to 4096 seconds: 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds. And now, with this new update, Whatsapp is testing the new version of “delete for everyone”, which will raise the limit to a new undefined time in future updates.

As per the WABetaInfo, this new version allows deleting messages sent 3 months ago. Also, this new feature allows deleting messages for everyone regardless of whether a message has been sent.

However, this new version is currently under development, so nothing is always confirmed until it becomes an active feature for beta testers.

In addition, it may be possible that WhatsApp will allow the deletion of sent messages before this feature is activated. But in such a situation, only the messages sent after the feature is activated can be deleted.

WhatsApp to extend QR-based chat transfer feature for old Android, iOS phones

WhatsApp Chat History transfer feature

WhatsApp is simplifying the process of transferring chat history from one phone to another through a new feature. The fresh beta (2.24.13.6) update of WhatsApp introduces a new way for a seamless transfer of conversations from an old phone to a new one, without the need for Google Drive backups.

With Beta 2.23.9.19, WhatsApp brought a QR code-based system that allows users to move their chat history directly between Android devices. The beta new update suggests the possibility of extending this feature to allow cross-platform chat history transfers, potentially including iOS devices.

Presently, WhatsApp supports chat history transfers between iOS and Android, but it’s limited to newer Android versions and requires a physical cable. The new update aims to eliminate these restrictions to offer a universal solution for all users. This new feature would be a significant improvement over the current chat transferring method.

The details of how this new universal transfer feature will work are not yet clear, as it is still under development. Through this, WhatsApp aims to provide a more user-friendly and universally applicable migration solution.

WhatsApp Chat History transfer feature

WhatsApp is releasing a new beta update with version 2.24.13.3, which brings a new feature that allows users to pin their most important channels to the top of their channel list.

The new feature is currently available to a limited number of beta testers. It makes it easier for users to keep track of their top two preferred channels.

Previously, users had to scroll through all their channels to find the ones they visited usually. The new pinning feature of WhatsApp simplifies this by letting users select up to two channels to pin at the top of their list. This feature is saving time and improving overall app navigation.

To pin a channel, users simply choose the channel and use the pin option in the app’s top bar. Once pinned, the channel will remain at the top of the list for easy access.

Moreover, the update also includes the ability to perform actions on multiple channels at once, such as muting or marking them as read. The new feature is expected to be rolled out to more beta testers soon.
