WhatsApp will soon allow you to edit your sent text messages
Following the announcement of some major features like group polls, WhatsApp Premium, that are under development, the popular messaging platform will soon allow users to edit text messages.
After releasing the ability to react to message as a new messaging feature, WhatsApp is now working on letting users edit their text messages for a future update of the app. About five years ago, this feature was announced by wabetainfo on Twitter but WhatsApp discarded it after some days. Finally, the Meta-own company is now developing the edit button for text messages again!
As seen in the screenshot below, WhatsApp will soon allow users to edit text messages, thus making it possible for corrections of any typo after sending a message. Probably there won’t be an edit history to check previous versions of edited messages but since this feature is under development, their plans may change before releasing the feature. In addition, details about the time window to let people edit their messages are unknown at the moment, but we will immediately let you know when there is news.
Note that, even if this screenshot is taken from WhatsApp beta for Android, WhatsApp is working on bringing the same feature to WhatsApp beta for iOS and Desktop, and more details will be available later. Unfortunately, since this feature is under development, we do not know when it will be rolled out to beta testers, but be rest assured that you can find an updated article on this website when the feature will be released.
