WhatsApp, the popular cross-platform messenger, will soon sport the ability for you to easily clear messages in conversations. The beta version of the app (2.11.309) has been bumped with this functionality, showing off exactly what's on the way to the live release.
If you've been holding out for a way to effectively clear messages older than a certain date, without removing the entire conversation then this will be for you.
The new feature will be located in the Settings area, between screen rotation settings and blocked contacts. Three options will be available (as shown below): clear all messages, those older than 30 days, or messages older than 6 months. It's a pain should conversations become too large to store, or you may wish to simply remove history from your device.
It's worth noting that this new feature covers all conversations and not individual threads. If you choose one of the above options, the wipe will affect all current conversations with WhatsApp contacts.
There's no word on when this feature will be introduced in the live release of WhatsApp, but we can't imagine it being far off. If you don't already have WhatsApp for Windows Phone, you can download the app from the store for free.
