WhatsApp Might Start Allowing You to Edit Messages After Sending

WhatsApp has a bunch of features that have made it an appealing messaging app to billions of users around the world. In spite of the fact that this is the case, there is one feature in particular that has not yet made it to the instant messaging platform. The feature in question is the ability to edit messages after sending them.

Some of WhatsApp’s biggest competitors such as Discord already offer this feature, and Discord does not require users to pay for the feature either. Considering how useful this feature can be, and given how WhatsApp has competitors that have been offering it for a good long while, the messaging app needed to act fast.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this feature might actually end up coming to WhatsApp users in the future. This is based off of the beta version, with several beta testers reporting that they got the feature.

It gave them a fifteen minute window in which they could edit the contents of the message. Users that did not have the latest version of WhatsApp were not able to see edited messages, so it might take some time for a wider rollout to be implemented.

This is just one of the new features that will be coming to the platform in the near future. Another feature on the horizon is that of a search bar. It will make it a lot easier for users to go through app settings than might have been the case otherwise, which might help them to get better control over how they use the app.

All in all, it seems like there are some exciting changes coming to WhatsApp. The messaging editing feature is especially interesting because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up bringing something that WhatsApp users have long requested but have simply never ben offered, which might have led to some of them switching over to other apps such as Discord as well as Telegram.
