Delete sent Whatsapp messages and Read Messages Deleted by Sender


In today’s exciting post I will be showing you how to delete sent Whatsapp messages and Read Messages Deleted by Sender. So if you are not aware Whatsapp has added a new feature that’s called message recall or delete for everyone option for messages. This can be particularly useful if you sent a message with an error or said something that you want to take back before the other party actually reads the message. The cool side of this tutorial is awesome as I will show you how to see what the person sent before they actually deleted the message.

Important to Know:

Remember that one grey tick beside a message means the message was sent, two grey ticks means it was delivered to the recipients phone and finally two blue ticks means it was read. It always OK to delete a message if it was not read and only delivered indicated by the two grey ticks. You are free to delete a message as you see fit but simply bear that in mind.

Also for the feature to work best all smartphones must be running the latest version of Whatsapp.Also messages you selected will be deleted for everyone on the latest version of Whatsapp in the particular chat you deleted it for.That includes one on one chats or messages and group ones as well.
