WhatsApp now offers 15-minute editing of sent messages
Messages that have been sent via Whatsapp can now be edited within 15 minutes
The most recent WhatsApp update will do away with the requirement for follow-up messages to correct mistakes or add a line to messages that have already been delivered. On Monday, the widely used WhatsApp messaging service, which is owned by Meta, debuted a long-awaited feature that would let users edit messages up to 15 minutes after sending them.
Messages sent via WhatsApp can now be edited up to 15 minutes after they are delivered.
Users of WhatsApp can edit a message by long-pressing it and selecting "edit" from the menu. When a message is modified, the term "edited" will be shown next to it to let friends know that it has been changed. The edit history won't be visible to other users, though.
The feature is now being rolled out and will soon be accessible to everyone.
The business expressed its excitement in a blog post: "We're delighted that you'll now have greater influence over your chats, such as fixing typos or adding more context to a message. Within 15 minutes of sending the message, you must tap and hold it for a bit before choosing the "Edit" option from the menu.
