A fresh report claims that WhatsApp is exploring a new function that strongly imitates the functionality of iMessage.
WhatsApp has always been an excellent alternative for people who need to be able to send and receive messages with persons who use different platforms. People using iPhones can communicate with folks using Android phones without being bothered by those irritating green bubbles. WhatsApp is now testing a feature that Apple added to iMessage in September.
With the introduction of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS 13 Sierra in late 2022, Apple added a further feature to iMessage: the ability to modify texts after they have been delivered.
According to WABetaInfo, the most recent beta release, made available to users on the TestFlight beta programme, has begun to integrate message editing for the first time. The identical feature has already been tested on Android and the desktop, but this is the first time it has been made available to the main beta channel on iPhone.
“All modified messages will be labelled with the ‘Edited’ label within the chat bubble,” according to the article. “In addition, WhatsApp will allow users up to 15 minutes after sending a text message to amend it.”
It appears that this function will soon be made available to the general public since it is now being beta tested. It’s impossible to predict when it will be made available to all users of the WhatsApp version that is now offered in the App Store. Fortunately, WhatsApp often does a fantastic job of moving items out of beta and making them accessible to everyone.
Of course, messaging platforms other than WhatsApp and iMessage have also provided the option to edit messages after they have been sent. But there’s a solid reason why they’re both so well-liked. Introducing editable messaging to consumers will undoubtedly be well-received across all platforms.
