WhatsApp has recently introduced a highly anticipated feature that allows users to edit their sent messages. This fantastic update was announced by Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, in a Facebook post. WhatsApp itself confirmed the news through an official blog post. According to Zuckerberg, “You can now edit your WhatsApp messages up to 15 minutes after sending them!”
WhatsApp Newest Feature Bring Edits!
This new feature brings relief to users who have ever experienced the frustration of sending a message with typos or errors. Making edits on WhatsApp is a breeze. All you have to do is tap and hold the message you want to modify for a few seconds. Then, a menu with three vertical dots will appear in the top right corner of your conversation window. Simply select the “Edit” option, and you’re good to go! iOS users can enjoy a similar experience through a pop-up window.
Once you’ve clicked the Edit button, you can replace the original message with an updated version. The edited message will be visibly marked with an “Edited” label, alongside the original message’s timestamp. This way, everyone in the conversation will know that the message has been modified.
It’s important to keep in mind that there is a time limit for editing messages. Within 15 minutes of sending a message, you have the freedom to make multiple edits. However, once this timeframe elapses, editing becomes impossible. If you need to correct an error after that, the traditional method of sending a follow-up message will be your go-to solution. Remember, WhatsApp does not store the full history of edited messages, ensuring that neither you nor the recipient can access the original content of an edited message.
