We do not want to repeat but you definitely remember that WhatsApp recently got a new feature that allows users to recall the messages they sent, that is, after hours they deleted their misplaced messages so that both parties could not read them. However, in the past, the deadline for the recipient of the message was one day, but now it seems to have expanded a bit, has increased to 1 day 1 hour 8 minutes and 16 seconds.
News about the max revoke limit.
1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds available to delete a message for everyone (like before).
1 day to receive the revoke request (OLD) -> 1 day, 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds to receive the revoke request (NEW)

We are not sure why there is this small extension, but perhaps the company thought that some users may travel and do not have access to the internet to receive the request.
