Among the various features WhatsApp is rumoured to introduce is the ability to edit messages, which iMessage received with iOS 16. We previously learned that the feature is in the works, and now we have more information about it.
WhatsApp will soon introduce the ability to edit messages
WhatsApp for Android beta version 126.96.36.199 now shows how the edited message will appear, according to a recent WABetaInfo report. It is suggested that WhatsApp is now working on updating the app when a message is edited. A “You sent an edited message” sign is visible next to the message. This implies that WhatsApp is still working on the new feature and that it could be released soon.
However, it is not yet available for beta testing. The feature is still in development, and we have no idea when it will be available to beta and stable users. We anticipate that this will occur for both Android and iOS users. You can see what this looks like until then.
The last we heard about the Edit Messages feature, we learned that it would be simpler to use. All you’d have to do is long-press a message to change it, make the changes, and send it again. It is stated that there will be no Edit History, but this is not confirmed. Furthermore, we don’t know how much time WhatsApp will give us to edit a sent message.
For those who don’t know, Twitter’s Edit option (which is currently only available to Twitter Blue users) gives users a 30-minute window. All of these questions will be addressed once the feature is made public. We’ll have to wait for WhatsApp to respond, and in the meantime, take these details with a grain of salt. We will keep you updated as soon as WhatsApp reveals anything. So stay tuned.
