WhatsApp is one of the most used instant messaging applications in the world at the moment with a user base of more than one billion. This app is available for Android, iOS, Windows platform and can also be accessed from desktop computers. Since the launch of this application, it has undergone some important changes, from just messages to sharing short stories for 24 hours.
Among the many updates, WhatsApp has recently released an update, which helps users to delete WhatsApp messages for both the sender and receiver if they are sent incorrectly. Recently we wrote on how to delete your twitter account.
Initially, the function mentioned above allows users to delete WhatsApp messages sent in 7 minutes. However, there seems to be slight a glitch in it, which enables the user to delete it after the specific time frame: 7 minutes. The error allows a user to delete sent messages for a maximum of seven days. To do that, follow the steps below.
How To Delete Whatsapp Messages Even After 7mins
Step 1: First, turn off the Internet connection, either your WiFi or mobile data on your smartphone and go to the settings panel.
Step 2: Now tap Apps -> Whatsapp -> touch Force Stop
Step 3: Once you have finished with this, go to the configuration again and deactivate the automatic updating of Date and time.
Step 4: Now change the date and time on your smartphone to the time you sent the message. If you’re not satisfied, you can scroll through the chat until it shows you the date and time in it.
Step 5: Once this is done, you can delete the message by holding down the message for a few seconds, where you will see two options ‘Delete for me’ and ‘Delete for all’. If you want to delete for the sender, you can do it by touching or, otherwise, touch the first option. Once this is done, change the time and date to normal.
