We have been monitoring a new WhatsApp feature that would let group administrators remove messages submitted by other members since December of last year. For each member of the group, the messages will be removed. After several months of development, WhatsApp is now making this feature available to Android beta users. If nothing goes wrong during the testing phase, a public release should happen in the ensuing weeks.
This useful new feature is included in WhatsApp beta for Android version 22.214.171.124, which was first noticed by WABetaInfo . Whether in one-on-one or group chats, it functions essentially in the same way as when you delete a message. You have the option to erase a sent message for everyone if you attempt to delete it within the allotted period. Group administrators will now have access to this feature for messages sent by other users as well. The ability to delete a message for everyone is available by long-pressing a message and choosing the delete button. The message’s deletion as an administrator will be visible to other users.
This function is useful to have. Several group members frequently interrupt conversations with irrelevant or unpleasant messages. Now that admins have the ability to delete such messages for everyone, ordinary users won’t have to deal with these issues. WhatsApp prepared this feature over its own sweet time, but it is finally available, albeit temporarily only in the beta channel.
Advertisement WHATSAPP PUBLISHES A NEW BETA UPDATE TO CORRECT A BUGS As previously mentioned, beta users of the Android app are now able to remove messages for everyone in a WhatsApp group using version 126.96.36.199 of the program. But a bug also exists in this version. When an unread message is tagged in a group chat, a catch-up button will constantly appear. Thankfully, WhatsApp responded to this problem right away. To fix it, the business released beta version 188.8.131.52. Therefore, you may want to apply the most recent beta update if you are experiencing this problem with WhatsApp groups.
It’s unclear when the new WhatsApp function will be available for customers who are not beta testers. According to reports, the deployment is exceedingly slow even in the beta channel. So far, only a select few fortunate users have had access to it. The Meta-owned corporation should accelerate soon, and a wider deployment should follow. When the Google Play Store’s public deployment starts, we’ll let you know.
