WhatsApp to add a feature that will allow you to delete a text message

​WhatsApp is testing a few features on Android (possibly on other platforms too) to let you cancel a text that hasn’t been received yet,share your real-time location with chat friends and even a Snapchat-like disappearing post.

According to beta testers a new Revoke option will let you cancel the sending of a message if it hasn’t been received or has been delivered but the other person hasn’t looked at it yet.

The other feature in testing is real-time location sharing. I’ve already reported on it a few days ago. If enabled you’ll be able to share your location with trusted people for 1, 2, 5 minutes or indefinitely. This will also work in group chats.

Finally WhatsApp is in testing of a feature similar to Snapchat’s Stories. You could add a photo with a caption or a doodle and it will disappear in 24 hours.

It remains to be seen if any of these new features will make their way to WhatsApp.
