How to make messages sent on WhatsApp disappear
After the introduction of the new 'Delete for Everyone' feature, users will not only be able to delete any sent message from their own phone, but the message will also be deleted from the phone of the person receiving the message. Apart from 'Delete for Everyone', users will also be able to see the 'Delete for Me' option. This option is for those who want to delete the messages only from their phone. “This message was deleted” will be written in place of the deleted message.
The new feature will work within 7 minutes of sending the message. After this it will not be possible to delete the message. For this the delete symbol has to be used.
