WhatsApp has announced the ability to edit messages for WhatsApp Web users; here’s how it works.
WhatsApp continually looks for ways to improve its platform and work for the demands of its users by adding new features. The ability to Edit messages after they have been delivered is one of the features that users have been asking for. This feature was announced earlier this year, and it is now available to select customers who have access to the app’s beta version.
WABetaInfo, a website that keeps track of all the latest WhatsApp developments, indicates that WhatsApp Web users who are part of the beta testing program can now edit their messages after they have been sent.

According to WABetaInfo, a website that tracks all the latest WhatsApp developments, WhatsApp Web users who are part of the beta testing program can now edit their messages after they have been sent. For any text message, the option is available from the menu options. The modified messages will be updated as long as everyone in the chat is using the most recent version of WhatsApp.
“The limit on editing messages has been set to maintain the authenticity of the conversation, so users cannot completely change the message after a long time, as this feature is a tool that should only be used to correct typing errors,”
The ability to edit messages is currently available only to WhatsApp Web beta users. This suggests that WhatsApp beta for Android users will be available soon. According to the newest WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 update on the Google Play Store, this is the final stage before the feature’s official debut.
In the meanwhile, WhatsApp is working to offer an iOS feature to Android users. According to WABetaInfo, the app will soon display the names of missed calls in red in the calls tab. This makes it easy for users to determine who they missed a call from. The functionality is still in beta testing and is currently only available to beta testers. However, it should be available to all Android users in the near future.
