WhatsApp Introduces Message Editing Feature
Meta-owned WhatsApp is set to start allowing users to edit messages after they are sent. “From correcting a simple misspelling to adding extra context to a message, we’re excited to bring you more control over your chats. All you need to do is long-press on a sent message and choose ‘Edit’ from the menu for up to fifteen minutes after,” WhatsApp said in a blog post. WhatsApp’s new editing feature alerts recipients with an ‘edited’ notification, ensuring awareness of corrections while maintaining privacy. End-to-end encryption safeguards messages, media, and edits. The global rollout is underway, granting access to all users soon.
