Since the beginning, WhatsApp is supporting Microsoft’s mobile platform with regular updates and all important features. Today, WhatsApp is rolling out yet another update to its Windows Phone app with improvements and fixes.

WhatsApp for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile has been updated to version 2.17.306. Unlike the previous update, WhatsApp hasn’t added any new features but today’s update has improved the application with fixes to the ‘delete for everyone’ feature.

With the latest update, WhatsApp has improved the reliability of the delete for everyone feature. The other changes include general performance improvements and bug fixes.

Last week, the Facebook-owned messaging platform WhatsApp rolled out the “Delete for Everyone’ feature to the Windows Phone, Android and iOS apps. The feature lets you delete the delete messages from the receiver’s phone, for example, if you have mistakenly sent a message to the wrong person, you can revoke it within 7 minutes.

“Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete messages for everyone. In order for messages to be successfully deleted for everyone, both you and your recipient must be using the latest version of WhatsApp for Android, iPhone or Windows Phone,” WhatsApp explains.

WhatsApp also explains that it is a useful feature for all users as if you have sent a message which contacts a mistake, the messaging app lets you rectify it by deleting the message. However, the message can be deleted only within seven minutes, after which you cannot delete the messages. You can learn more about the feature here and download the updated version of WhatsApp from the below Microsoft Store link.
