There are reports that the world’s largest instant messaging application WhatsApp will soon introduce the best feature ever on the platform, the option to edit the message.
The news of the edit message feature being introduced on WhatsApp was initially reported in June 2022 and it was expected to be introduced by the beginning of 2023, but it did not happen.
But the latest news in this regard is that the experts of WhatsApp are still busy working on the edit message feature and it will probably be offered for testing in the next three months.
According to Webatinfo, a website that monitors WhatsApp updates, the work to introduce the edit message feature has entered the final stages and will be rolled out for testing soon.
The report said that initially the said feature will be offered to limited iOS users first, after which it will be offered to Android users sequentially.
According to the feature, users will have the option to edit the wrong message sent within 15 minutes, however they will not be able to edit the wrong message.
Under the said feature, users will only be able to edit the words and also change the links sent, but nothing can be said about the videos and images sent immediately.
It is possible that the photos and videos sent under the edit message feature can also be selected and changed or edited, but it is too early to say anything in this regard.
Before this feature, last year WhatsApp also introduced a feature to retrieve deleted messages.
Under the above mentioned feature, users can now undo the messages deleted by mistake within 30 seconds.
