WhatsApp to allow users recall messages

WhatsApp could soon let users recall messages sent within five minutes, offering a way to prevent embarrassment over mistaken texts.  

The sought after feature will allow users to "unsend" messages, removing them from a receiver's phone before they have had a chance to read them.

WhatsApp is testing the addition as an option in the beta version of its latest update, which could soon be available on iOS, according to monitors WABetaInfo.

It adds that WA Web update adds many improvements for revoked messages, modifying the time limit to unsend messages (5 min).
