Over the years we’ve received many requests from our users for video calling, and we’re excited to finally offer this feature to the world.
Thank you for using Whats App and we promise to keep working hard every day to improve the service.
Starting today you can now delete messages you sent by mistake — whether to one person or an entire group.
Here's how it works: tap and hold on the message, choose "Delete," and then "Delete for everyone." You have seven minutes to delete the message after it's sent.
But the way this happens now on Whats App is pretty rudimentary.
We've heard stories of shopkeepers who use Whats App to stay in touch with hundreds of customers from a single smartphone, and from people who are unsure about whether or not a business on Whats App is authentic.
Whether someone is communicating with a business around the corner or around the globe, people expect Whats App to be fast, reliable, and secure.
We'll be listening carefully to feedback during our test phase and keeping people informed as we make these tools more widely available.
Whether you're meeting up with friends, letting loved ones know you're safe, or sharing your commute, Live Location is a simple and secure way to let people know where you are.
This end-to-end encrypted feature lets you control who you share with and for how long.
Every year, when Brian and I would plan projects to work on, we always talked about improving and evolving this original "text only" status feature.
We are excited to announce that, coinciding with Whats App's 8th birthday on February 24, we are reinventing the status feature.
In the coming days, Whats App's more than one billion users can make video calls across Android, i Phone, and Windows Phone devices.
