WhatsApp is working on a way to let you un-delete messages

Ever deleted a message you didn’t mean to? Or chosen the wrong image to un-send?

Well, WhatsApp is reportedly working on a fix that will allow users to restore messages they’ve accidently erased.

The company has rolled out an undo option to some users on a beta version of the app.

When these users delete a message, a bar with an ‘undo’ button appears at the bottom of their screen. When the button is clicked, the message is restored.

Alongside other features in the testing pipeline — like message editing and saving disappearing chats — ‘undo’ may end up making its way to regular app users.

But there’s no guarantee at this stage, according to tech website Android Police.

As well as stopping you from having to retype a message you’ve deleted in error, the feature would help users who’ve accidently selected ‘Delete for me’ rather than ‘Delete for everyone’ in a group chat.

Being able to ‘undelete’ that message would let you restore it, then go ahead and delete it properly.

‘Undo’ is one of a long list of features the firm is tipped to be working on, including an option to hide your ‘online’ status. Both were spotted by tech outlet WABetaInfo.com, which monitors new beta options for the app.

The Meta-owned messaging app has confirmed some long-awaited updates including the ability to block screenshots of ‘View Once’ messages.

Other new privacy features will include the option to leave a group without alerting other members.

It will take time to roll these out to all users, but they’re expected to be available soon.
