Open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you wish to delete. It works for all types of WhatsApp messages, including text, videos, GIFs, voice messages, locations and images (very useful). As well, WhatsApp warns that you won't get a notification if the "delete for everyone" feature failed to work, so be sure to double-check. This will inform the receiver of the message being deleted to avoid any issue. The feature allows users to "Delete for everyone, ' while posting group messages within seven minutes of its being sent". This feature only works for the contacts who are on the latest version of WhatsApp. The delete for all feature will not be available seven minutes after sending the message.
