Now no need to worry as users can delete such messages well-before the users read them.

Tap Delete (trashcan icon) at the top of the screen Delete for everyone.

The uniqueness of the WhatsApp payments feature is that a user can make payments without leaving the chat interface just like sharing a contact or location on the instant messenger.

Though Delete for Everyone has the potential to save you from awkward situations, you should still think twice before sending any messages - such as ill-advised drunken propositions - you might later come to regret. While the trend is catching up slowly, WhatsApp the popular messaging app might be very close to introducing a new payments feature in its platform. Well, if you're a WhatsApp user, the messaging app will now let you do just that.

WhatsApp said that recipients could still possibly see your message before it is deleted or if deletion was unsuccessful, and you also won't be notified if deleting for everyone didn't work - so you may have to double-check the chat window to be sure the text has been purged.

We've been hearing about WhatsApp to soon offer payment option within WhatsApp chat.

According to a report by FactorDaily, the WhatsApp payments feature is in its final stage and is being tested by the WhatsApp employees.

However, it won't be a feast for WhatsApp users - not just yet.

"They are likely to do some sort of an extended beta program for the feature in November and by December you can expect a full rollout, " a person familiar with the matter told FactorDaily. India has already scrutinized this feature before it has been released for the public. If WhatsApp is able to roll-out this feature efficiently, it may become a tough competitor for the existing payment platforms in India including Paytm, Mobikwik and others.

This is in line with the previous rumours that WhatsApp plans to use UPI, backed by the government and also integrated by Ola, to enable payments between users. This has earned some widespread regulatory scrutiny from around Europe and the U.K. As of the moment, WhatsApp has not resolve such concerns yet.
