Here’s how to edit WhatsApp messages on Android and iOS devices
  • WhatsApp has launched a new edit button feature.
  • This update will let you edit messages that you sent by mistake.
  • The feature will be available on both Android and iOS devices.
WhatsApp has recently introduced an exciting new feature that’s available to all users – a long-awaited ‘Edit button.’ This follows the recent addition of a chat locking option.

Now, WhatsApp users have a 15-minute window to rectify any erroneous messages they may have sent. This highly convenient feature eliminates the need to delete entire messages, allowing users to correct sentences or words that were initially inaccurate.

The introduction of the Edit button on WhatsApp is a valuable tool in preventing the embarrassment caused by sending incorrect messages. The 15-minute time limit provides ample opportunity for most users to make necessary edits. However, if an exceptionally lengthy message is sent, the time limit may appear somewhat restrictive for editing purposes.

It is important to note that the feature may not be immediately available to all users, given the app's extensive user base consisting of billions of individuals. The update will progressively reach all users over the course of the next few days.

Here's how you can edit mistakenly sent messages on WhatsApp-

  • Launch the WhatsApp application and navigate to any chat.
  • Simply long-press the message that you mistakenly sent.
  • Now, you will see an option called ‘Edit Message.’ Tap on it to modify the text according to your needs. Once you've made the necessary changes, you are done.
At present, the ability to edit messages is limited to Android and iOS devices. If you're accessing WhatsApp through the web on a PC or Mac, you can only edit the message on your primary device.
