WhatsApp has announced a new feature that allows users to edit sent messages. The feature is now rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
In a recent announcement, Mark Zuckerberg shared that WhatsApp users will now have the ability to edit their sent messages within a 15-minute window. This new feature grants users greater control over their chats, allowing them to make corrections or add additional context to their messages.
To edit a sent message, simply long-press on the message and select “Edit” from the menu. You can then make any changes you want to the message and send it again. Edited messages will be marked as “Edited” so that recipients know that the message has been changed.
This new feature is a great way to correct typos, add additional information, or change the meaning of a message. It can also be used to fix mistakes that were made in a previous message.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, with over 2 billion active users. The new edit message feature is a welcome addition that will make it even easier for users to communicate with each other.
Here are some additional details about the new edit message feature:
- You can edit a message within 15 minutes of sending it.
- If someone has already seen the original message, they will see the “Edited” label.
- You cannot edit a message that has been forwarded.
- Edited messages are protected by end-to-end encryption.
The edit message feature is a powerful tool that can be used to improve communication. Use it responsibly and enjoy the enhanced flexibility it brings to your WhatsApp experience.
