This is one of the most anticipated features of the year from WhatsApp even though third party alien WhatsApp have already adopted this feature for quite some months ago.
The “Revoke ” feature has been on since last year and WhatsApp users have been anticipating the rollout of this feature. Finally, it’s here for everyone. The Revoke feature allows you to recall a message already sent to a group or in chat. It will delete from your end and also be deleted from the recipients end in a group or in chat.
This feature is now available for Android, iPhone, Windows phone users and has been officially announced by WhatsApp. It’s rolling out already…
What is this Feature Now Called?
It is called Delete for Everyone or Delete for me. The Delete for Everyone feature works for any message type in WhatsApp: text messages, images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, stickers (in future), contact cards, files, locations, quoted messages and status replies.
Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you have sent to either a group or an individual chat. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or if the message you sent contains a mistake.
How to Delete Message For Everyone
>> Open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you wish to delete.
>> Tap and hold the message > choose Delete from the menu. Optionally, select more messages to delete multiple messages at once.

Deleting messages for yourself allows you to delete your copy of messages you’ve sent or received from your phone. This has no effect on your recipients’ chats. Your recipients will still see the messages in their chat screen.
