But now, finally, a text-messaging platform has taken one for the team and created a feature that allows you to un-send a text within five minutes of sending it. REJOICE!
WhatsApp released this feature only temporarily in their latest beta update, but note that it only worked on messages that hadn't yet been 'read'.
The company have yet to confirm or deny whether or not this will be a permanent function, but PLZ IF YOU'RE LISTENING WHATSAPP, THIS IS A STROKE OF GENIUS!
The un-send feature wasn't the only update that was included in the release. You will also be able to share your location, new font shortcuts, and also a 'change number' feature which allows users to be informed on whether or not a contact has changed their number.
Watch this space for any more updates!
