Whatsapp working on a new update which allows you to Edit and Delete Sent Messages

Whatsapp has been adding a lot of new features lately with the most recent ones being the option to make video calls and share GIF files. The most commonly used messaging app in the world is about to add another useful feature, the ability to edit and delete sent messages. Our friends on twitter, WABetaInfo (one of the most reliable sources of whatsapp updates especially for iOS) claim to have discovered the feature in the Whatsapp 2.17.1.869 beta build for iOS. A video tweeted by them shows the deletion process in action. If you want to delete a sent message on both ends, hold the desired message long enough until the options for that message appear on your screen, select the “revoke” option and the message will be deleted on both ends. The edit option works the same way, hold down the message you want to edit and select the “edit” option to make amends in the message content.

Starting from today, our favorite web giants have added a bunch of cool new features to Google Assistant as well as Google Duo. The Santa tracker has been added to Google Assistant which tells you the whereabouts of everyone’s favorite old man.

There are plenty of new Santa jokes that have been added to assistant as well which further enhances the fun and humor not just among the younger generation but for all those who are young at heart. For those of you who are celebrating Hanukkah, you can also ask it to spin the dreidel, too. It’s all in the name of holiday cheer 🙂   Besides this, Google have also integrated the festivities within Google Duo, their official video calling app with a twist; in which few unsuspecting kids experienced the magic of Santa in New York’s Made by Google store. Check out the video below and see the excitement on the faces of all the children who were lucky enough to be a part of this wonderful activity.
