(Pocket-lint) – The WhatsApp messaging platform has a number of great features built in, including disappearing messages, the ability to hide your online status and profile picture from certain contacts, and the ability to delete a message after it’s finished. to have sent.
However, one feature is missing: the ability to edit messages. We don’t always want to delete an entire message because we made a spelling mistake or we got the wrong name.
Although nothing is official yet, WABetaInfo found evidence in the beta version of the WhatsApp app for Android 220.127.116.11, that the company is working on the ability to edit messages for a future app update.
The site reported that the feature would require updating WhatsApp if you’re running an older build in order to see an edited version of a message. However, he did not specify the deadline for editing a message.
When WhatsApp introduced the ability to delete messages, you had to do it within a very specific time frame – 1 hour, 13 minutes and 8 seconds. This has since changed, but WhatsApp may opt for a similar specific window for edited messages.
As of now, nothing is official, so it’s unclear when the Message editing feature will come to the final version of the WhstaApp software, but given that Apple is now offering this feature in its Messages app on iOS 16 , we hope to see her soon on WhatsApp.
