Message recall or delete? What’s the difference?

Have you ever sent a message to the wrong person? Embarassing, isn’t it? We understand, we all made that mistake once or twice. Well, the good news is that you can rectify it!

All your text messages, stickers, emojis, media and locations are retractable within the first 10 minutes in the chatroom. Delete, however, doesn’t have a time restriction. Recalling and deleting messages will not send out any chat notifications to other members.

The difference:

  • Delete │ Delete will only delete messages in the original sender’s chatroom, the rest of the group members are still able to view the messages.
  • Recall │ By recalling a message, all group members are no longer able to view the message. Recall is only available for 10 minutes after the message is sent and “This message has been recalled” text will replace the original message.
