You'll soon be able to unsend that risky text in WhatsApp

We don't know when WhatsApp will unleash the feature on everyone, so you'll just have to keep your eyes peeled. If you have then I am sure you understand the embarrassment that follows.

WhatsApp looks like it is in the final stages of testing its Delete For Everyone feature that will allow you to delete a message you've sent, hopefully before those little ticks turn blue. WhatsApp rivals including Telegram, WeChat and Viber already sport a similar feature, and it is high time that the leading IM service had it too. According to them, the dedicated recall server is now working and successful in deleting messages.

However most users do not have access to the feature.

WhatsApp has begun testing the feature on both Android and iOS devices, according to a WABetaInfo leak. So you will have to wait a bit. It explains: "WhatsApp for Android: when the sender deletes the message for everyone, it will be updated in the Notification Center too", and "WhatsApp for iOS: when the sender deletes the message for everyone, WhatsApp will delete it in the Notification Center". Speculations arose that the company could have enabled the feature back in June.

Earlier this year, some users reportedly noticing signs of this feature on WhatsApp's code.

The Delete for everyone feature has appeared in an August beta version of the app for Windows phone. What are your views on this?
