NewsNigeriaMeta announces new features to edit ‘sent messages’ on WhatsApp

WhatsApp users can now edit sent messages to either correct a misspelling or add extra content to the message, Mark Zuckerberg says.

In a Facebook post announcing the latest feature, Zuckerberg said messages can be edited up to 15 minutes after they’re sent.

WhatsApp says the new feature is to enable users to have more control over their chats as hitherto, messages had to be deleted in case of errors or corrections provided in a different message.

To edit a message, all you need to do is long-press on a sent message and choose ‘edit’ from the drop-down menu within fifteen minutes of hitting the ‘send’ button.

When a message is edited, it will display ‘edited’ for the recipient to be aware of the correction without showing the edit history.

“This feature has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks,” a statement from WhatsApp reads.
