WhatsApp Rolls Out New Message Editing Feature for Up to 15 Minutes: How to Edit a Sent Message


Finally, WhatsApp has made message editing possible. After a message has been sent, you have up to 15 minutes to change it. For messages that are edited, it just says “edited,” and the receiver won’t see the original message.

Additionally, WhatsApp stated that altering a message will not notify other users in your conversation about a new chat. You cannot alter any other forms of material or captions with this option; it is just available for messages.

WhatsApp: How to Edit a Sent Message

  • On Android, long-press the message you want to change, then select More Options. On an iPhone, just select “Change” after the long-press. On a web browser or desktop, hover over the message you want to edit, then select Menu > Edit message.
  • Choose Edit to make changes to your message.
  • To update your message, hit the checkmark after you’re finished.


Beginning earlier this month, WhatsApp beta users began receiving message editing capabilities. The function will progressively roll out to all WhatsApp users globally starting today on Android, iPhone, and desktop. According to WhatsApp, this function will be accessible to all users in the upcoming weeks.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also testing a sticker creation tool that will eliminate the requirement for third-party stickers.
