The application in Beta version of WhatsApp for Android lets us see a preview of what the company plans. One of the hints is that how the company aims to reintroduce the old WhatsApp states under another denomination. Also, for the first time appears in the app for Android the option to delete already sent messages.
The implementation of the new states of WhatsApp in the style of Instagram Stories or Snapchat has been a flop. The reactions of the users were negative and which is the reason why the company planned to make some changes. In fact, Facebook is expected to rescue the old concept, the former WhatsApp states. The latest beta of the app for Android devices offers us the first answers.
The old states of WhatsApp return
No, current WhatsApp states will not disappear. However, the instant messaging application will re-implement the previous model, which will coexist with the current one.
As you yourselves can see in the captures provided by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp will relocate the section of the previous states to the privacy section, in adjustments. From there we can access from the Info section.
Option to delete sent messages in WhatsApp
The option to delete sent messages is also included in the Beta. Another of the innovations that we see in this latest Android Beta is the option to delete sent messages. Similarly, the app shows us how this feature will be available in the Android app. It will be possible to delete a sent and unread message by simply making a long click on it and clicking on the “Unsend” option.
If you have the beta of WhatsApp and you have been willing to look for those sections, you should know that these are hidden options for all audiences, although accessible through the tool WATweaks (root).
However, in the case of the option to delete messages sent in WhatsApp, even if we access the interface, the function is not yet active since a modification is necessary in the company’s servers to be effective. However, we can consider these clues as an indication that these options will be among us soon, in any of the updates that could be launched for the official version.
