The app's current delete button is almost useless, as it only deletes messages on the sender's side of the conversation, but that looks to be changing in the latest update.
The recall feature aka Delete for Everyone does not work with quoted messages as of now, as WhatsApp is currently not recalling messages contained in a quoted reply.
WhatsApp explains: "Deleting messages for yourself allows you to delete your copy of messages you've sent or received from your phone".
Whatsapp also warns that even if you delete a message, the recipient may still have had a chance to see and open the message. From what we now know, the feature is only functional if both the sender and the recipient are on the latest version of WhatsApp that supports this feature.
After months of leaks, WhatsApp has finally added the ability to delete a message you sent by mistake before your contact has read them.
WABetaInfo claims the rollout for WhatsApp's recall feature will be very slow and hit iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. You can also select several messages at a time if you need to get rid of a bunch of them at once. There is no way to erase messages for everyone after seven minutes pass.

The messages you delete will be replaced by "This messaged was deleted" in the chat.
You won't get a notification of whether or not deletion was successful for everyone.
The new feature is not foolproof as recipients may see your message before it's deleted. The message doesn't disappear without a trace, though.
It's similar to a tool rolled out by Google for their Gmail app a few years ago, though to utilize that feature, you have to click "undo" within a set amount of time after sending the email. To access the delete functionality, just tap and hold.
While it's unknown when the new feature will be available for United Kingdom users, it has begun to roll out to people in the USA, according to tech site TechCrunch. "Today, we are excited and proud to share that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every day to stay in touch with their family and friends", WhatsApp had said in a statement.
All messages including, text, videos, GIFs, pictures, and voice messages can be recalled. It also includes that messages won't be deleted on the Symbian application, so those clients will keep on seeing the recalled message. The first is that it is not possible to secretly delete a message. Moreover, everyone involved has to have the latest version of the app for it to work.
