Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp is always having new ideas and innovations. It started as a Whatsapp messages application, then the blue stickers to show if the message sent has been read, then the voice call followed by the video call. We cannot forget the group chats too. Whatsapp is going to provide one more feature of messages recall and edit with the new update.
The new feature may appear on WhatsApp beta version 188.8.131.529 on iOS.
Now you don’t need to worry about the Whatsapp messages which we sent mistakenly to your friends or in groups. You can edit and recall the messages same as in Gmail sent messages. With this option, you can delete the message before they open the message. Next time when you send a message intended for your friend mistakenly to someone else on WhatsApp, relax as you can edit the messages or revoke such messages in the near future.
According to the WABetaInfo account on Twitter, the instant messaging app WhatsApp has reportedly added the features to revoke and edit the sent messages in a beta version testing.
“WhatsApp has added in beta the possibility to edit messages that you already sent. It is actually disabled by default and it’s under development,” the WABetaInfo’s tweet read. But the users will be able to edit only recent messages and not the old ones.
Last month, WhatsApp launched a video calling feature from India which was rolled out globally to other countries. The feature is available on all platforms — Android, iOS, and Windows. With 160 million users in India, WhatsApp is available in more than 50 different languages around the world and in 10 Indian languages. Nearly 100 million calls are being made on the platform daily worldwide.
Latest reports suggest that WhatsApp is testing an edit feature that will allow users to ‘recall’ a sent message, edit it and send it again. For the same, reports said WhatsApp is getting Gmail’s coolest feature: Recalling sent messages. This feature is also said to have appeared on WhatsApp beta version 184.108.40.2069 on iOS. While ‘recall’ and edit is definitely a cool thing, what is more, magical about the feature is that the ‘recalled’ message will reportedly disappear or get deleted from the recipient’s mobile too.
