Breaking news today as drunken love declarations sent over WhatsApp shall no longer pose a problem.

In WhatsApp's latest update you can now choose to revoke sent messages.

There is a catch however; the message cannot already be seen by the recipient.


By simply pressing down on the message which you wish to delete you can select 'revoke' and the receiver shall be none the wiser!

The feature is currently only available on iPhone beta users but will soon be rolled out to all WhatsApp formats.

Much less awkward encounters between friends and co-workers shall ensue following this update. Thank you WhatsApp.
