WhatsApp Introduces Message Editing Feature, Allowing Users to Edit Sent Messages

WhatsApp, the leading messaging platform, continues to dominate the market despite the emergence of alternative apps like Telegram and Signal. With a track record of introducing new features at a rapid pace, WhatsApp has now begun rolling out another feature worldwide.

The latest addition is the ability to edit messages after they have been sent, eliminating the need to delete and resend the entire message in case of mistakes or desired changes. Users can edit a message by long-pressing it, tapping the three vertical dots button, and selecting the 'Edit' option.

It's important to note that the edit option will only be available for a limited time after sending a message—specifically, fifteen minutes. This timeframe is similar to the duration provided for deleting a sent message for all recipients in a chat. WhatsApp will also notify the receiver, whether in individual or group chats, when a message has been edited.

Following a period of beta testing, the message editing feature has started rolling out to the public WhatsApp app this week. However, it may not be immediately available to all users and will be gradually expanded to more individuals in the upcoming weeks. If the feature is not visible on your device yet, there's no need to be disheartened as it will become accessible over time.
