Deleting sent messages on WhatsApp: Here’s a cheat code

Of all the features that WhatsApp has acquired over the years, ‘Delete for Everyone’ is definitely among the best. This feature works for both iOS and Android platforms and follows the same suit for both individual and group chats. Using this feature, you can remove a message that you sent, accidentally or not, from the chat within 7 minutes of sending it. However, there may be times when you may want to delete the chat but those ‘golden 7 minutes’ have expired. But now it seems there’s a way you can do it even after seven minutes.

The ‘hack’ has been discovered by Android Jefe, a Spanish blog website. The blog claims that a bug in WhatsApp allows this hack, using which you can delete messages even after 7 minutes of sending them. But here too there’s an expiry limit of seven days. This means users can delete messages sent for up to a maximum of seven days. Another plus, it works for both read and unread messages. This means you can delete/recall a message even after it has been read. Wondering how? Here’s an step-by-step guide:

* Go to Settings

* Turn off Wi-Fi and Mobile Data of your smartphone

* Go back to the main Settings page and head to Apps

* Select WhatsApp and choose Force Stop

* Go back to main Settings page again and head to Date & time

* Disable Automatic date & time

* Set the date and time to exactly the same as you sent the message

* Reopen WhatsApp and go to that message

* Tap and hold on it and choose Delete

* Now you will be able to see both options to ‘delete for me’ and ‘delete for everyone’

* Select ‘Delete for Everyone’ and the message you wanted to delete/recall will show as ‘This message was deleted’ GadgetsNow too tested this feature and found that it does work. Though it did take a few extra minutes at times for the message to be delete from the recipient’s phone.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
