Along with this new feature, WhatsApp may also extend the message deletion time limit on the app. The Desktop version of WhatsApp beta 2.2147.4. was reportedly spotted with a change in the time limit for deleting a sent message. Earlier, the message deletion time limit was one hour, eight minutes and 16 seconds but now it may be extended to seven days and eight minutes. The feature of extending the message deletion time was first tested by WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo within the beta version 22.214.171.124. WABetaInfo also went ahead to share a screenshot where the ‘Delete for Everyone’ option appeared in the screenshot for a message that was almost a day old.
According to news reports, users of the instant messaging app may also get an option to upload any picture of their choice and create a sticker out of it. The addition of a customised tool to make stickers funnier may also be available. The custom sticker creation tool will be available for the Web and Desktop versions of WhatsApp.
Earlier, WhatsApp had planned to remove any restriction present on the deletion time of a message, but now while the time limit may continue to be present, it will be extended. However, this particular feature of WhatsApp is still in its development stage.
