Sent a naughty message to your lover – and just realised (with horror) that you sent it to your boss by mistake?…

You might soon be able to avoid sender’s remorse by recalling the message (as long as it hasn’t been read yet).

WhatsApp could soon introduce the ability to recall sent messages, a lifesaver for those of you who regularly panic after sending texts by mistake.

Senders can delete a message from the receiver’s phone if it is still unread

The delete function (together with the facility of editing sent messages that haven’t been read) is being tested on the beta version of WhatsApp’s next update.
