WhatsApp extends Delete for All message time limit

It also looks like WhatsApp is planning to add a new feature called "Block Revoke Request" in the background to curb use of modified versions of the app, which allowed some users to delete messages sent as long as three years back. The time frame that the chat app earlier gave was 7 minutes and it recently got updated to 1 hour 8 minutes and 16 seconds.
It's not clear why the limit is now so specific, apart from being 2^12, and the WhatsApp support pages don't provide any additional info on the time limit. The time limit is 24 hours rather than 1 hour to account for phones which are offline when the Delete for All message is sent.
The feature is reportedly available for iOS update 2.18.31 on AppStore.
What's more, if you do delete a message, the other people in the conversation see a "message deleted" alert - so they know that you've said something you've regretted, and may ask you some awkward questions about it.
Nevertheless, having a grace period of one hour can prove beneficial especially to those who want to erase past messages that may be misconstrued or incriminating. It then checks the date related information of the message saved in the database.
The caveats that have always applied to this feature still apply: short of brainwashing someone, the effectiveness of the feature is limited if your friends have already opened up the message.
