Users of WhatsApp can change their texts.

One of WhatsApp’s most requested features, the ability to edit messages, has now been made available to users.

You may now edit sent messages on WhatsApp, according to a blog post published on Monday by the messaging service owned by Meta Platforms Inc (META.O). “For the moments when you make a mistake or simply change your mind, you can now edit your sent messages on WhatsApp,” the article read.

Senders will be able to edit their messages within 15 minutes of pressing send thanks to a feature that will be made available globally in the coming weeks.

.By holding down the message for a long time and selecting “edit” from the drop-down menu, the feature can be accessible. The label “edited” will appear next to the amended message but the edit history won’t be visible.

Editing messages is already possible in rival applications like Telegram and Signal, and last year, Twitter began rolling out the feature to some users.
