|Previous news?||Mark Zuckerberg announced upcoming release of new business features for WhatsApp!|
In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS 126.96.36.199 update, we announced a feature that allows users to edit messages. With this feature, WhatsApp provides users with a new tool to fix their typos without deleting the wrong message. Note that this feature has also been announced by Mark Zuckerberg through the Meta Channel on Instagram one month ago, suggesting that the feature was finally available to everyone. However, the official changelog for the latest WhatsApp for iOS 23.12.76 update, which is available on the App Store, provides conclusive evidence that WhatsApp is really releasing the ability to edit messages to everyone!
The official changelog still mentions news regarding the ability to add a call link to the calendar app, announced with the WhatsApp for iOS 23.10.77 update, but it also mentions that a feature to allow users to edit their messages is finally widely rolling out. Finally, certain users now have the capability to edit their text messages within a 15-minute timeframe from sending them, with the freedom to make an unlimited number of edits. This restriction has been implemented to keep the integrity of conversations, preventing long-term modifications to messages as the editing feature should only be a tool to rectify typing errors. However, it is important to note that messages sent from a different device cannot be edited at the moment.
If you don’t have this feature, note that some accounts may receive it over the coming weeks, as indicated in the official changelog. Please stay ahead by regularly updating WhatsApp from the App Store and the TestFlight app to get the feature in the future in case you don’t have it after installing this update.
The feature to allow people to edit their messages is finally available for iOS users that install the latest update of WhatsApp from the App Store. It is also available after installing the latest version of the WhatsApp Business app. Make sure to install this update to enjoy a better user experience.
