WhatsApp Will Soon Allow Users to Edit Sent Messages
WhatsApp Will Allow Users to Edit Sent Messages, Something thing Subscribers may have in common is accidentally “hitting the publish key” and then realizing there was a typo issue.
Like many of you who are likely to have been victims of this practice approach, there is good news for you.
Users of the centralized instant messaging platform may soon be able to correct mistakes and errors in messages that have been delivered.
WhatsApp users have been requesting the ability to add/remove people from their messages for a long time.
Prepare for this feature to become a reality shortly, according to reports.
WhatsApp is working on an edit button, according to WABetainfo, a portal dedicated to news/updates on the instant messaging platform.
The edit button will allow users to alter messages even after they have been delivered. WhatsApp users have long used the asterisk sign to indicate spelling fixes to their recipients when there is a typo problem.
Instead of using an asterisk to rectify spelling issues, users may find that the edit button is a more efficient way to do so.
To edit a message, a user must first perform a long-press on the sent message and then select the three-dot menu on the side.
After selecting the edit option, the user can make any necessary changes to the original message and resend it.
For the time being, it’s uncertain whether a time window for amending messages will be included; rest assured, we’ll let you know as soon as we get more information.
The edit button was first seen in the WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.17.26 in 2017, with the first evidence of it appearing in the WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.17.26.
The capability, however, was never made available to end customers.
Telegram, WhatsApp’s competition, has long allowed users to modify messages, a capability WhatsApp is wary about distributing to end-users.
The edit button is still in development, and it is unclear when it will be available to users.
The functionality will most likely debut in the beta channel first, as with all WhatsApp tests.
Sign up for the beta program if you want to be among the first to try it out.
Similar to iMessage and Instagram, WhatsApp Messages Reactions have been widely rolled out to users.
Users can use the tool to add rapid emoji reactions to their messages.
