You'll soon be able to unsend that risky text in WhatsApp

However, if the receiver has already read the message, then the sender would not be able to recall it.

We've all done it: sent a text message to the wrong person or group in WhatsApp. To save you from such embarrassment WhatsApp is working on a recall button feature and now there is a report that the feature could soon come to Android and iOS users.

The recall feature is already available on WhatsApp's rival apps like Viber, Telegram and more.

According to them, the dedicated recall server is now working and successful in deleting messages.

The Unsend function is expected to work on all kinds of messages, including text, photos, videos, GIFs, and files. In essence, the feature essentially blocks the message when it's stuck on the server. WhatsApp has your back, however, with the messaging client's latest beta allowing you to delete those embarrassing messages of you slamming a can on your head that you sent. Also, it is unclear if the feature will be available on both the Android and iOS version of WhatsApp. "It is actually disabled by default and it's under development", reads a previous tweet from the site.

Whatsapp is soon going to surprise its users with new features popularly dubbed as "unsend" or "delete for everyone". It said that the new tools are being tested through a closed pilot programme with BookMyShow and 1mg.
