With WhatsApp, the one hour removal period enables users to delete their messages from all sides of the conversation, whether that's with one person or multiple people.

So while you're able to delete that drunken rant to your ex, you'll never be able to remove their knowledge that you sent something at 1am on a Saturday morning.

It means that whether you have misspelled something, sent a message in the wrong chat group or even just written something that you now regret, you can remove it from the conversation. Of course, the recipient (s) would not see the message, but would see a ‘message deleted placeholder replace the deleted message.

WhatsApp doesn't have a secret conversations option like rivals where it creates a temporary conversation that isn't stored on sender or recipient devices. This ensures that nobody can tamper with the feature to delete messages for everyone.

First released in January 2009, WhatsApp now has user base of over one and a half billion, making it the most popular messaging application of all time.
