Creating lot of buzz in the past, it is finally found in a report by @WABetaInfo that the popular messaging app WhatsApp will be bringing a new feature to revoke or edit sent messages. The feature, which was earlier seen on iPhone beta version, is now heading for WhatsApp Web. The feature would allow users to recall or 'unsend' messages they have sent to their contacts, or even edit them.
@WABetaInfo, which tracks beta releases of the app, claimed that very soon a new update for WhatsApp Web will be coming which will add the revoke feature to the browser version of the app. Well that’s not all; WABetaInfo goes on claiming firther that the users will be able to 'unsend' messages within five minutes of being sent. It, however, adds that the WhatsApp revoke feature has been disabled for now.
The WABetaInfo also claimed that the new font shortcuts have been added for users on WhatsApp Android beta. WhatsApp for Android version 2.17.148 is said to add new font shortcuts for bold, italics, and strike through. This will eliminate the need to add text inside asterisks while typing for making it bold, or type phrase between underlines to italicize. However, till now it’s not been clear that when the update will roll out publicly for everyone on Android or iOS.
Earlier, WhatsApp for Android and iPhone added new text formatting feature last year. The addition allowed users to set-up text inside messages as bold, italics, and strike through.
