WhatsApp will soon let you ‘unsend’ messages

It looks like WhatsApp wants to give a second chance to all of the drunk texters out there as a new ‘unsend’ feature is in the works. The messaging app is currently testing a way to recall messages, removing them from the chat.

This is all according to some screenshots obtained by WABetaInfo, a Twitter account dedicated to WhatsApp changelogs and news from the app’s beta branch. You can see the tweet and screenshots below:

The feature will apparently let users edit or completely remove messages within the first five minutes of them being sent. The feature is currently disabled but it should arrive in the next iOS update for the app.

KitGuru Says: Being able to edit messages is always a useful feature, especially when autocorrect kicks in on iOS. How many of you use WhatsApp regularly? Do you think this new feature will come in handy?

Briony builds ALL WHITE PC in the Limited Edition DARK BASE 700

Back in 2017 Leo took at look at the Dark Base 700 from Be Quiet! Leo liked the case with its sleek styling and impressively quiet design but thought it was a little on the pricey side. During CES a new version of the case, the 'Limited edition White Dark Base 700' was announced. With only 3000 units available there hasn't been much movement on the price with the case retailing for £166.99. I was sent one of the 3000 cases and was happy to use it to create an all white build and document the whole process on video.
