How do I unsend/delete or recall a message on a WhatsApp Chat or Group?
You can only delete messages for everyone for up to seven minutes after sending. Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete messages for everyone. To delete messages for everyone:
- The tap and hold the message > Choose the Delete from the menu. You can select multiple message provided it is within the 7 minutes.
- Tap Delete for Everyone.
- Messages you successfully delete for everyone will be replaced with “This message was deleted”(Recipients) or “You deleted this message” (Sender).
