According to reports, WhatsApp is working on increasing the time limit before you can delete messages for everyone in a chat. Currently, the messaging app allows you to delete messages for everyone in 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds.
WhatsApp is also rumored to be working on a feature that will speed up audio messages while they are being played back. This is similar to how voice notes can be sped up to 1.5x or 2x while being played back. While the feature has been spotted testing on iOS devices, it is expected that Android devices will receive it soon.
As previously stated, WhatsApp reportedly planned to remove any restriction on deleting messages. According to the most recent beta update, WhatsApp is planning to extend the time limit for message deletion from 1 hour, 8 minutes, 16 seconds to more than 7 days.
This update is still in the works, and it is possible that WhatsApp will change its mind about this option before the official release or a new announcement on their social accounts.
Can WhatsApp Beta Users Use This Feature Right Now?
This limit is expected to be significantly increased in a future update. The company is currently working on raising the limit. This feature is not even available for beta testers right now because it is still in development. While WhatsApp was previously planning to remove any limit on message deletion, those plans appear to have changed.
