The feature to delete messages within text conversations is not new. Since 2017, WhatsApp has allowed the ability to delete messages after sending them, while it has been updated every year, with the maximum deletion allowed being one hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds, before reaching 60 hours with the final launch, which is 2 days and 12 hours.
