I am sure this has happened with most of us when you accidentally sent a message to the wrong group or the wrong person. 

WhatsApp Will Allow Undo 'Delete For Me' Action Till 5 Seconds & Save You From Embarrassment!

WhatsApp Accidental Delete Feature

As we know that whatsapp gives multiple options to delete this message, but suppose in a hurry to delete the message, you accidentally hit the “delete for me” option instead of the “delete for everyone” option. 

So the dilemma comes as now you can neither see or delete the embarrassing message you sent but it is visible to the other people in the chat you sent it to. 

It cannot be a more embarrassing moment than this, but don’t be disheartened as the social media platform has a solution to your woes.

Considering this scenario, WhatsApp has released a new “accidental delete” feature in order to get you out of a tricky situation exactly like this.

According to this new feature, Whatsapp gives you a five-second window from the time you deleted a message to undo the deletion. 

Once you delete a message, a small dialog box will appear with the message “Message deleted for me.” 

This dialog box will also have a small “Undo” button.

So, if you click on the button, the message you just deleted will reappear and voila! You have the choice to make the right decision a second time. 

WhatsApp Picture-in-picture Support

WhatsApp announced that it has begun testing picture-in-picture support for video calls on iOS on December 14. 

It appears that Apple devices trail far behind Android devices with this feature as Android has been supporting it for quite a while now. 

So far, the picture-in-picture feature for iOS is currently only available to WhatsApp beta users.

Sources say that a wider release will only follow next year.

At the start of this month, WhatsApp Pay’s India chief Vinay Choletti quit the firm just four months after he joined the role. 

He had taken charge of WhatsApp Pay in India after Manesh Mahatme departed the company in September to join Amazon.

Besides this, WhatsApp announced new features to improve the quality of calls on the app and the features include call links, 32-person calls and more.

Not only this, the users can view who is speaking if their camera is off during a group call. 

It will have an in-call banner notification to inform about a new participant entering a group call.

This way, the users can easily multitask while on a call thanks to a minimized in-call video screen.
