WhatsApp launches new update - but it STILL does not include the feature you REALLY want

WHATSAPP has pushed-out a new update for iOS users which bundles a slew of nifty new upgrades to the hugely-successful chat app. However, despite the latest leaks pointing to the launch of the ability to revoke sent messages – the feature has yet to appear in the iOS app.

WhatsApp has updated its hugely-popular iOS app – but those looking to revoke or delete sent messages shouldn’t hold their breath.
Instead, the Facebook-owned messenger has rolled-out a number of features around photos.
The latest update to the iOS version of WhatsApp includes the ability to apply filters to the photos you’ve taken within .
You can apply these filters to photos, videos and GIFs, which should make them a little jazzier before you share them with friends.
At launch, there are only five available options – dubbed Pop, B&W, Cool, Chrome, and Film.
However it’s not difficult to imagine more filters in the pipeline.
Speaking of photos,  is also now capable of grouping images into albums whenever multiple snaps are sent from the same contact.
That should avoid the stream of photos that currently flood the chat whenever someone fires over a handful in row.
Finally, you can now swipe from left-to-right across an individual message in a thread to reply.
That should prove to be a bit of a time-saver – especially when compared to the previous method, which required users to press-and-hold on a message to load the menu with the option to Reply.
The new features are available on iOS now.
WhatsApp has yet to reveal an Android release date for the next update.
According to sources with knowledge of the company’s plans, the feature is ready to be enabled – but not enabled server-side.
The , which has also been teased under the moniker of ‘Unsend’ and ‘Revoke’, will reportedly allow users to recall all messages that have been sent within the last five minutes.
This includes text-based messages as well as those that include images, videos and GIFs

Sent files with quoted messages and attached documents will also be able to be recalled, as will Status replies.
Unfortunately, there is a catch – only messages that have not yet been opened or read by the recipient can be recalled.
If the WhatsApp recipient reads the message or it falls outside that crucial five minute window, you’re going to have to deal with the fallout of whatever message you desperately tried to revoke.
The hotly-tipped feature’s upcoming release was teased by prominent Twitter account, WABetaInfo.

The popular Twitter account shares information on features pushed-out in the latest beta software releases.
It claims WhatsApp Recall will be enabled in version 2.17.30+ of the app.
WhatsApp recently pushed-out version 2.17.30 to the iOS App Store, however the Recall feature remains turned off.
Responding to queries of whether or not the coveted Recall skills will be switched on with the latest build, WABetaInfo stated: “The code says yes.
"They can wait more, but it’s sure that it can be enabled in 2.17.30.”

Fast Food Nutrition: Junk Food's Effect On Your Body

Fast food nutrition should make up a minimal part of a healthy diet. Fast foods and junk foods are high in fat, sodium and sugar, which can lead to obesity and a range of attendant health problems, including diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. Here are the facts about how excessive junk food consumption affects your body.
Junk Food Affects Your Energy Levels
Junk food doesn't contain the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. As a result, you may feel chronically fatigued and lack the energy you need to complete daily tasks. The high levels of sugar in junk food puts your metabolism under stress; when you eat refined sugar, your pancreas secretes high amounts of insulin to prevent a dangerous spike in blood sugar levels.
Because fast food and junk food don't contain adequate amounts of protein and good carbohydrates, your blood sugar levels will drop suddenly after eating, leaving you feeling grumpy, fatigued and craving sugar.
Junk Food Contributes to Poor …

How to Create French Fries in Home like what we eat in Hotels or Like McDonals

Uttam Sheth:I Cook Like This

There’s nothing more satisfying than effortlessly turning raw ingredients into a simple, iconic dish; like taking a handful of flour, eggs, water and turning it into fresh hand shaped pasta. It’s the kind of easy skill that comes with long practice and it always shows, and it’s always awesome to achieve.

That’s why I’ll go to immense effort to achieve that effortless skill. And for me, there is nothing more out of reach than getting french fries right at home. There’s just something about them that, especially in shoestring form, are better done on a commercial factory scale: In-n-out’s fries famously suck, Shake Shack had to walk back their fresh in-store french fries. Heston Blumenthal seemingly has it figured out, as long as its British chip sized, but what we’re looking for here is something more classic, something closer to shoestring.

When I saw this post on Quora, I jumped at it. It seemed almost too simple and good to be true, just a few easy steps, a…
