We all regularly send messages and pictures to our friends through WhatsApp, and it may occur that we get the recipients wrong. This danger is always just around the corner. In the worst case, you may even send a compromising photo to your employer or boyfriend/girlfriend, especially while sending multiple images simultaneously to several people.
Fortunately, there is a solution. If you’ve sent a message to someone you didn’t want to, and you see a clock icon, it means that the message has not been sent yet or there is a lack of data coverage. In this case, you still have time to fix it and delete the message already sent.
1. Open the chat window and to select them. You will now see a familiar set of buttons at the top of the chat window. Tap the “” button to open its pop-up window, where you’ll select the option to retract your sent messages.
2. In doing so, the text within the message bubble on WhatsApp is replaced with a “” for the recipient. And you’ll see a “” tag on your screen.
