WhatsApp has a simple new method to send money without leaving your chat window.

The rollout comes after a beta trial of the new peer-to-peer payment system on almost a million users. It started launching a limited service in India, where it holds over 200 million users. Along with this, the report also suggests that if the phone of the user is switched off during the time the Delete for Everyone' request has been sent out and it remains off for next 24 hours, then the request generated will be considered invalid and the message will remain in the app.

An addition was made to the instant messaging platform to allow the users to delete the message accidentally sent to a wrong contact or a group.

Hitting the Delete symbol and selecting Delete for Everyone will remove the message for good. The post points out that this will make sure no-one can illegally delete messages older than 24 hours for everyone.
