You Can’t Delete WhatsApp Messages Once They’ve Been Quoted

This feature was rolled out a couple of months back to delete embarrassing messages you mistakenly sent to wrong contact or group before they read them. Users can only delete messages for everyone for up to seven minutes after sending.

But we lately discovered that the feature doesn’t work has expected. For instance, quoted messages in group chats continue to show in quotes even after they have been wiped. Attempting the same thing in a private chat bred the exact same results. It would appear that this is another instance of the classic.

If a user sends a message and deletes it from a group or individual chat within seven minutes, the message will disappear.

However, if within these seven minutes, that message is quoted then the original message will successfully disappear but the deleted text continues to show in the recipient’s quote.
Interestingly, there is no mention of how the feature works in cases of quotes in the WhatsApp’s FAQ.

It doesn't work as expected
As you can observe in the screenshot, while the original message will successfully disappear, the deleted text continues to show in the recipient’s quote.
Just be mindful of what you send to group or to your contacts.
And finally, Four Banks have Joined WhatsApp payment platform in india which they are set to support as soon as the platform launches on a country level side. Patiently waiting for them to roll out this feature globally.
