World’s most famous instant messaging app, owned by Meta, WhatsApp is finally considering rolling out sent message editing updates. After this, Apple iPhone users will be able to edit any sent message they have typed mistakenly. Editing and omitting words will be very easy even after the message has been sent. This feature was in-demand and needed for a long time and its functionality is the same as iPhone’s iMessage.
WhatsApp to Allow Editing of Sent Messages
Although this feature is not announced officially by the platform itself, a WhatsApp progress tracking platform called WABetaInfo has revealed its arrival as a beta update for very select individuals across the world.
So, as per the platform, users will now be able to correct their typing mistakes with a very simple and easy process. This feature also works best as it lets you edit sent messages without sending an additional one. This will improve the communication between WhatsApp users as their messages will be clear and error-free.
How Will You Identify an Edited Message on WhatsApp?
The report states that users will be allowed to edit a sent message within 15 minutes and the message will be marked as an edited label, informing the receiver that it was corrected. Although the feature is currently under development, it’s still being spotted in a few devices with a beta update. The stable version will be rolled out soon for all iPhone users across the globe. And then maybe it will be sent to android users as well.
