Finally, WhatsApp's edit messages feature is now here: A complete guide
Delhi : WhatsApp, a messaging service owned by Meta, often introduces new features to improve the platform's overall user experience. According to a story from earlier this year, WhatsApp is developing the ability to alter transmitted messages. Now, it appears that the app has begun handing out the functionality to beta testers.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has started giving beta testers access to the option to modify sent messages on WhatsApp Web. The report confirms that the 'edit messages' option is included in the text message menu choices.
"If you choose this option, a new window will open with a popup to let you alter the message. You have up to 15 minutes to modify messages in conversations and groups if the option is enabled for your WhatsApp account, and you may change messages more than once, according to the article.
This function is a tool that should only be used to rectify typing errors, according to the report. "The limit to edit messages has been set to maintain the authenticity of the conversation so that users cannot completely change the message after a long time," it was noted.
A select group of beta testers who signed up for WhatsApp Web's official beta programme have access to the ability to modify messages; it is anticipated that all users will have access to this feature in the upcoming weeks.
iOS functionality will soon be available on WhatsApp for Android
A feature from iOS is about to be added to WhatsApp for Android. The Meta-owned platform may soon introduce a new feature that would display missed callers in red inside the Calls tab, according to a report from WABetaInfo. By highlighting missed calls in red, this upgrade aims to make it easier for users to locate them. Only beta testers have access to the functionality, which is presently undergoing testing. However, it is anticipated that Android users will soon be able to access the function.
