WhatsApp may soon allow users to edit sent messages

Users of WhatsApp may soon have the ability to edit sent text messages and correct typos and other errors. Users of WhatsApp have been requesting the ability to edit text messages for what seems like years, and it now appears that the feature may soon become a reality.

According to WABetainfo, WhatsApp is currently working on the development of an edit button that will enable users to make changes to messages after they have already been sent.

Users of WhatsApp have long used the asterisk (*) to indicate spelling corrections because the app does not have a button for editing messages. The other option is to delete the message entirely. However, it’s possible that users will soon have a quicker way to correct their spelling mistakes. The following screenshot provides an illustration of the edit button as well as the steps involved in editing a message.

In order for users to edit a message, they will need to perform a long press on the message that has already been sent and then click on the menu button with the three dots. When users select the edit option, they will be given the opportunity to make any necessary alterations to the initial message and then resend it. It is not clear at this time whether there will be a period of time during which messages can be edited.

The idea to include an edit button in WhatsApp first surfaced in 2017. The beta version of WhatsApp for Android version 2.17.26 was where the edit feature was discovered for the first time. The feature, however, was never made available to end users. It is important to note that WhatsApp’s competitor, Telegram, has made it possible for users to edit messages for many years.

The edit button is still in the process of being developed and has not yet been made available to WhatsApp users. As is the case with all of WhatsApp’s experiments, the feature will almost certainly debut on the beta channel first. Signing up for the beta program allows you to be one of the first people to test out the new feature.

In other news, the WhatsApp Messages Reactions feature is now generally available to users. Users will be able to respond to text messages with quick emoji reactions, much like they can do on iMessage and Instagram.
