WhatsApp ‘Recall’ Feature Spotted On Beta Version of Windows Phone

Follow Us

Next time we send out a message to a person actually intended for someone else, we might not have to freak out as much. WhatsApp has been developing the much-anticipated ‘recall’ feature which essentially lets the users delete a message after it has been already sent. However, you only have a five-minute window to recall a message sent on the app, meaning users will be able to edit recent texts and not the older ones.

There have been abundant rumours for quite some time that the social messaging giant might launch this ‘recall’ feature soon and there have also been sightings of the beta version of the same recently. It was reported that the Android and iOS users would be the first ones to receive the update, however, Windows turned out to be the first recipient of this feature.

One might expect that the Windows OS would be one of the last ones to receive new features and nonetheless, a new report states that the ‘recall’ feature of the WhatsApp beta version on the Windows platform was spotted online. From all the previous rumours, we can expect an imminent launch of this feature on the messaging app.

The screenshots in the leaks do not hint at how this feature of the WhatsApp beta version 2.17.218 on the Windows phone will supposedly work. However, there is a ‘Learn More’ button where there will probably be instructions on how the feature works. The ‘recall’ feature will be most likely to be enabled by the next major WhatsApp update.

Going by some current reports, you can access this feature by tap-and-holding a sent message and then choose the recall option. The only other catch in addition to the five-minute window is that the feature works only if the recipient of the text has not yet viewed the message. Currently, the app already has a ‘delete message’ option in the device, but the text remains visible on the recipient’s phone.

The new beta version of Whatsapp also comes with additional features such as a pin or unpin multiple chats and mute or unmute notifications for selected chats.
