If you are a frequent WhatsApp user, you must have heard about the WhatsApp Web beta program that the platform recently announced. This program aims to provide users with new features and ask for feedback and bug reports at the same time. Many users who signed up for the beta program wanted to know what new characteristics were coming. We have some exciting news for you today: WhatsApp Web beta users now have access to the long-awaited ability to edit messages!
The Edit message Feature:
The “Edit Messages” Option can be accessed by selecting “Edit Messages” from the text message’s menu. You will be prompted to edit the message in a new window after selecting this option. This feature is currently available to some beta testers who have joined WhatsApp Web’s official beta program. In the coming weeks, it will be made available to additional users.
The limitations of the Edit message Feature:
In order to preserve the integrity of the conversation, WhatsApp has set a time limit of 15 minutes for the Edit Messages feature. After a long time, users are unable to completely alter the message. The sole purpose of this feature is to correct typing errors. It’s important to note that this feature only works with text messages at the moment and some editing feature enhancements are planned for the future.
The ability to edit messages will be made available to even more users in the coming weeks and some of the beta testers who participated in WhatsApp Web’s official beta program already have access to the feature. Additionally, they are able to confirm that mobile apps will soon offer this feature.
WhatsApp users who are constantly seeking new functions and enhancements will find the beta program for WhatsApp Web to be an exciting development. The platform’s ability to edit messages is a welcome addition that will undoubtedly make communication even easier.
