WhatsApp retain deleted message

WhatsApp has been offering the ability to delete messages for everyone for years. But have you ever mistakenly deleted the message just from your side when you want to delete it for another side as well? It’s so embarring. Therefore, Whatsapp now allows you to retain deleted messages so you can later delete them for everyone.

Recently, this famous messaging application has started to roll out a new update for Android and iOS users. As per the official information, this WhatsApp update makes it possible to retain your deleted messages by mistake for a few seconds.

Now when you delete a message just for you, you will see an “Undo” option at the bottom of your screen. When you tap on it, your deleted message will start appearing on the chat again. You can now use the “Delete for everyone” function to delete the message from another side too.

However, this retrieve ability will only be available for a few seconds when you delete the message. So if you want to keep your messages, don’t take much time to think and hit the Undo button.

It is worth mentioning that the Undo option will only appear when you tap the “Delete for me” option. And when you hit the “Delete for everyone” option, that message will be permanently deleted from both sides.

Do note that this is a staged rollout. This feature might not be present on your WhatsApp at this moment. However, the company is continuously expanding it and it will reach your Android or iOS phone as well. Make sure to upgrade your WhatsApp to the latest version to get this function.

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.
