However, many Android users, through unauthorised WhatsApp versions could delete WhatsApp message as old as 3 years.

In hindsight, it is also possible that WhatsApp is testing out a new feature that could allow users to send time-limited messages which is something that already available on other messaging apps such as Telegram.

However, it must be noted that the extended deadline is live for WhatsApp Android beta version 2.18.69.

According to WaBetaInfo (@wabetainfo), a Twitter account that tracks changes in WhatsApp's beta builds, the app will silently add the "Block revoke request" feature, which will prevent the misuse of Delete for everyone feature. Messages that have a time more than the 24 hours are no more deleted.

WhatsApp Messenger has updated its "Delete for Everyone" feature. Now, if the upgraded algorithm receives a revoke request, it checks its database for a message with the same ID, and then checks if the current date is less than 24 hours when when the message was sent, and only then proceeds to delete the message - using the same ID that had been generated previously. To be more precise, it's being extended to exactly 4,096 seconds, a little over 1 hour 8 minutes.

WhatsApp has made a decision to stick to 24 hours as the reference time period here to ensure that there is ample time for the recipient or recipients in case of a group chat, to receive the revoke request.

What happens at the moment with the messaging app is that if a "Delete for everyone" request feature was sent out, then WhatsApp would just match the request ID to the message ID and then delete if a match was found. The reports also highlights that if the recipient's phone is not switched on within 24 hours, the revoke request will be considered invalid.

Recipients may see your message before it's deleted or if deletion was not successful.
