WhatsApp edit messages

WhatsApp today announced a much-awaited feature. WhatsApp users will be soon able to edit sent messages. This message editing feature has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

To edit a sent message, you have to just long-press on a sent message and choose ‘Edit’ from the menu for up to fifteen minutes after.

The edited messages will display ‘edited’ tag alongside them, so the message receivers will be aware of the correction without showing edit history.

From correcting a simple misspelling to adding extra context to a message, WhatsApp team is excited to bring you more control over your chats.
