Undoubtedly, WhatsApp is one of the most widely used messaging services in the world. Due to its popularity, the creators seem to work regularly to update and add new features.
Users can now sort messages by date and hide their online status thanks to a new feature recently added to WhatsApp beta. Users may soon get the feature to edit messages that have already been delivered, according to a recent WABetaInfo post.
While the exact functionality of the feature is currently unknown, WhatsApp will likely mark messages as edited by adding an “edited” label.
Additionally, it is rumored that users will be able to access post editing for a limited time. It seems that there is still work to be done to be able to change delivered messages. Currently beta testers cannot edit messages as part of the WhatsApp beta for the Android 22.214.171.124 upgrade.
It is noteworthy to remember that WhatsApp was developing the same feature back in May of this year before abruptly deciding to end it without any justification. We may have to wait a while for the feature to be available to everyone as there is currently no information on when it will be added to the stable version of WhatsApp.
After Apple announced one of the highly anticipated features in its latest software iOS 16, which allows users to edit messages sent via iMessage, WhatsApp is now all set to roll out its new message editing feature. This feature is the long awaited feature expected by the users and lets you modify messages after they are sent.
According to a report from earlier this month, WhatsApp may stop supporting older iPhone models as early as October. iOS 10 and iOS 11 users will now receive similar notifications.
