WhatsApp allows users to edit texts

WhatsApp is currently allows its users to edit their text messages, a long-awaited feature for all users, in a move that will see it match a feature offered by competitors like Telegram and Signal.

“For the moments when you make a mistake or simply change your mind, you can now edit your sent messages on WhatsApp,” the Meta Platforms Inc.-owned messaging app said in a post on Monday.

The feature is set to roll out worldwide in the coming weeks giving users the ability to modify their messages within 15 minutes of hitting send.

The new feature can be accessed by long-pressing the message and choosing “edit” in the drop-down menu. The modified message will carry the label “edited”, however, it will not show the edit history.

Competing apps such as Telegram and Signal already allow users to edit messages, while Twitter launched the feature to edit tweets to select users last year.
