Yes, it’s now officially launched! WhatsApp has added the option to edit messages, helping Meta compete with services like iMessage and Telegram. Who have already had the feature for some time. This is the result of several testing attempts. Take a look at the specifics.
WhatsApp’s edit message feature can be extremely useful for people who often mistype words, send the wrong information to the wrong person, or just add details they forget to include. This is in addition to the ability to delete messages for all recipients, which is used to correct mistakes.
Make sure you’re using the most recent version of WhatsApp to use the edit message feature. Otherwise, go to the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store and update it. The update is being rolled out in stages, so it may take a few days for it to reach your device.
How to Edit WhatsApp Message
The ability to edit messages will be easily accessible. To make changes, simply long-press a message and choose ‘Edit’ option from the menu . One thing to keep in mind is that the process will be timed; you will only have 15 minutes to make changes once you have sent the message.
Edited messages will have an “edited” label next to them, notifying recipients of corrections without revealing their edit history. Your communications and any modifications you make are end-to-end encrypted like all private calls, media and texts.
In the next weeks, everyone will be able to use this service, which has already begun to roll out to users worldwide.
