WhatsApp working on a new edit feature that may soon allow users to edit sent messages

WhatsApp Meta is working on a new edit feature. According to the latest update, the new feature will let users edit messages once they're sent, letting the users correct the wrong information.

The edit feature was spotted by Wabetainfo, the website that tracks all the WhatsApp-related developments. WhatsApp reportedly started working on the quality five years ago but discarded it soon after being adopted on Twitter. However, after a five-year break, WhatsApp has contemplated working on the edit feature again.

the Wabetainfo report said, India Today reported.

"There won't be an edit history to check the last versions of edited messages, but since the feature is under development, their plans may changes before releasing the feature. In addition, details about the time window to let people edit their messages are unknown. Still, we will immediately tell you when there is news,"

The feature was being tested on WhatsApp beta for Android. Still, the report states that WhatsApp is working on bringing the same quality to WhatsApp beta for iOS and Desktop, and more details will be available later.

The feature will also bring WhatsApp to speed with Telegram, which already offers users the ability to edit messages once they're sent.

In its current form, users are given an option to edit text after sending it by long-pressing it.

If a WhatsApp user sends a message by mistake, they have only two options to rectify it. They can either send out a correct statement and ask users to ignore the one with the error, or they can cancel the wrong message and send out a new one.
