Messaging deletion is rolling out now to iOS, Android, Windows Phone (lol), and desktop. It should also benefit all the small and medium businesses that use the chat app to do their business. Just remember that this feature give you the ability to delete messages, not giving you a guarantee that it will delete them.

For instance, if a user deletes some message then, will the recipient of the message will get to know about this? To be able to delete messages, you will get a new option after you delete delete, allowing you to "delete for everyone" instead of just from your own device. You need to tap the trash option from the dropdown menu appearing on top of the screen.

However, the procedure (copy, delete, correct, resend) is annoyingly elaborate just to fix a simple typo. As per users who have seen the feature they have said that the WhatsApp experience is "slick and convenient to make payments".

A new WhatsApp support article, spotted by The Next Web, reveals that both sender and receiver will need the latest WhatsApp for this feature to work.

This could be the end of drunk texts, mistaken booty pics and the like.

Well, the countdown has begun for digital mobile wallets, they'll be shivering in cold, nights and days, and might weep to see how WhatsApp won't even chew anyone slowly but will directly gulp every one in the digital payment sector, once, WhatsApp's payment feature will start to roll-out. This will be the first time WhatsApp would introduce this payment option in the world.

"They are likely to do some sort of an extended beta program for the feature in November and by December you can expect a full rollout, " a person familiar with the matter told FactorDaily. Besides, the instant messenger already has over 200 million users in India, so people could adopt it pretty quickly.

"WhatsApp is no longer developing the edit message feature", it tweeted.

WhatsApp's blog post suggests Delete for Everyone will reach all users very soon. WhatsApp is now used by over 1 billion people on a daily basis.
