A new feature will soon allow you to delete sent text messages on WhatsApp (Report)
Think of all the embarrassment that could be saved.

This could be a lifesaver the morning after a heavy night out… if it’s not already too late, of course.

Fair play to you if you’ve never been guilty, but we don’t consider it a stretch to say that most of us have, at one point, sent a text message that we lived to regret shortly afterwards.

Ever woken up and looked at your phone in horror the morning after the night before? Even worse, have you ever sent a message in error to the last person you’d ever want to receive it?

Yeah, it’s not pretty…

WhatsApp users guilty of doing so in the past will be glad to know that a feature allowing users to ‘recall’ messages is reportedly on the way, at least according to WABetaInfo, a Twitter account populated with updates about the messaging service, although not officially affiliated with the company itself.

WABetaInfo claim that while the feature now exists and works, it is not currently enabled, although it is expected to be rolled out in the near future.


Of course, the most sensible way of avoiding embarrassment is to carefully consider messages before you send them, but when that might not be an option while on the way home from a night out in the back of a taxi at 3am, it’s nice to know that WhatsApp could very soon have your back.

While you're here...

Why not hit play on the video below to let funnyman Fred Cooke woo you with his sexy French accent, Dara Dynamite ditches the Speedos to become a Kingsman, Mayo band Flat Out put the woe of the All-Ireland Final behind them to perform the Magic Cover and Justine Stafford takes to the streets to find a date for the Debs.

We also caught up with the cast of Kingmsan: The Golden Circle – Taron Egerton and Mark Strong – as well as the stars of new Irish film Maze – Barry Ward and Nidge himself, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (and his wonderful hat).

It's all jam-packed into this week's episode of The JOE Show, so what are you waiting for?
