A new feature that will come to the WhatsApp Web application has emerged. The option to edit messages has been made available to users who have joined the beta program.
A few days ago, the beta program for WhatsApp Web was launched. WhatsApp wants to offer new features while waiting for bug reports and feedback from users with its beta program. It was a matter of curiosity which features will be in the beta program, it has finally become clear. WhatsApp rolled out the message editing feature to several beta testers.
According to the screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, when the message is clicked, the “edit message” option will appear and the message can be edited. Of course it has a time. You have 15 minutes to edit chat and group messages. So, it’s a feature to fix typos. Messages can be edited more than once. Currently, only text messages can be edited.
WhatsApp Web message editing steps
