Editing messages

In the early days of messaging, each correspondence was sent without any chances of editing or correcting the text. Email, AIM, SMS and even WhatsApp if you sent it, the other person would see it, with zero chance for retraction.

However, today, we live in the future, where we can edit a message with typos or thoughts we regret. WhatsApp has been slow to this edit party, until now, if you know how to set it up, anyway.

According to a report by Android Police, WhatsApp finally added an edit button to both its web and Android apps.

Don’t rush to WhatsApp looking for it, though: The feature is currently in beta testing, released first in WhatsApp beta v2.23.10.13, so it won’t pop up just yet on the official builds, including on iOS. But you can still try it out today.
