It’s a follow-on from the standard Delete For Everyone tool that lets you unsend messages.

Unsending is different from standard deletion, but it removes the text from recipient phones too.

It’s an easy way to scrub any sensitive missives from 微信 设备.

WhatsApp recently added a feature that automatically unsends texts after a certain amount of time too.

Now WhatsApp sleuths at WABetainfo have uncovered a new feature that lets group admins unsend your texts.

It means the person running the group can remove a text from everyone in that group’s member list.

This effectively turns admins into moderators for the group.

If you are a group admin, you will be able to delete any message for everyone in your groups,” WABetaInfo writes.

It’s likely that this would only apply to messages sent after the update went live.

The feature will soon be tested on the Android beta for WhatsApp.

This is where WhatsApp can test new features before rolling them out more widely.

It’s possible that WhatsApp might scrap this feature before it goes live.

But WABetaInfo says it’s going to be tested on both iOS and Android very soon.

当然, vanishing texts are never fool-proof.

Recipients could screenshot your messages and save them long after deletion.

But even though screenshotting is possible, the recipient might not do so.

So it’s generally a good idea to enable automatic deletion anyway.
