- Meta is now rolling out the ability to edit WhatsApp messages.
- You will need to edit your message within 15 minutes after sending it.
- All users should see this feature now or in the coming weeks.
We’ve been hearing about a message editing feature in WhatsApp for years, but it’s never materialized. Interestingly, plenty of other messaging services have had this feature, so it’s been a real head-scratcher why it’s taken WhatsApp so long.
However, the wait is now over. Starting today, Meta is rolling out the ability to edit WhatsApp messages. The feature will be available for all global users on both iOS and Android. You should see the feature active now, or you will in the next few weeks.
