New Delhi : WhatsApp had recently rolled out a feature 'Delete for Everyone' that allowed users to call back their sent messages but only under a restricted time limit of 512 seconds.

Now, we have learned that the company has increased its time limit to 4096 seconds, that is around 1 hour 8 minutes.

The change was first noted by WhatsApp Beta Info who tweeted: "A new WhatsApp for iOS update (2.18.31) is available on AppStore. It is a bug fixes update, but it has the new “Delete for everyone” limit, that’s 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds."

WABetaInfo notes that you can prevent someone from deleting a sent message simply by switching off your phone for a day, and that hackers can still use modified versions of the WhatsApp app to delete messages sent within the last day.

The latest version of the WhatsApp beta app can be found in the Store on your smartphones.
