It appears like WhatsApp is copying a very useful feature of Telegram as the popular instant messaging app is working on a button that would let users to edit text messages after they are sent. With this, the company aims to revive work on the feature, which was abandoned five years ago. A report from WABetaInfo, the Meta-owned platform said the button can be pulled up by long-pressing the message you want to edit, to select it and then tapping on the three-dot menu.
Well, this is not the first time that an edit option has been spotted in a beta version of WhatsApp. In 2017, it was part of the beta version of WhatsApp for Android, but it never reached users after the feature was removed during the development phase.
Although there is no confirmation from the company yet, we hope that this time it will be rolled out for users.
Meanwhile, a feature was recently discovered in WhatsApp Beta and it will allow users to save certain messages that disappear. Saved messages can be accessed by visiting the contact or group information page where they are saved in the “kept messages” section.
Also, WhatsApp may be working on other ways to store disappearing messages, according to WABetaInfo.
