Today, the beloved messaging app WhatsApp (owned by Meta, bien sûr) has unveiled a hotly-anticipated option. In taking back control of their conversations, users can now edit messages they’ve sent before 15 minutes pass. This will no doubt help clean up the chat and avoid any embarrassing typos!
Mark Zuckerberg, the king of Facebook, made an announcement on his beloved social media platform. He stated that users can now modify their messages within fifteen minutes of having dispatched them. If you want to do this, all you have to do is press down and hold onto the message before selecting the edit feature. If you make any changes, a label saying “edited” will appear next to the time it was sent. Just beware – WhatsApp doesn’t save earlier versions of edited messages and no one else will be able to take a peek at what was originally there.
In a recent blog post, WhatsApp announced a new feature that had users all abuzz. With the press of a button and menu selection, they can now edit messages sent in the last 15 minutes. This is great news for people who always make typos or lack the context they need to get their message across. Before this, you’d either have to delete the entire thing or send a separate correction– but no more! Last year, they also added an extra 12 hours to their message deletion window, extending it from 48 to 60 hours.
WhatsApp may be somewhat slow to the party, but they finally saw the value of message editing and bringing it to their users. Not too far behind, Apple dropped iOS 16 with its own text changing abilities. Meanwhile, Twitter gave a similar feature– if you’re willing to pay for it– last year.. While the 15-minute time limit for editing messages may not be as extensive as the 48-hour window provided by Telegram, it is a step in the right direction.
WhatsApp users, rejoice! By giving you the power to edit your messages, this handy tool can help you quickly make corrections and get rid of typos. Forget about sending those extra texts that create more confusion or deleting your old ones and adding a note of deletion – editing is the way to go!
Meta, the powerhouse behind WhatsApp, is unrolling an editing feature that’s gonna soon be available to all of its users. This update will enrich how users currently interact with each other on the app. It’ll make sending messages a smoother process – something fans have been clamoring after for ages.
