WhatsApp, the ‘Edit’ option for invitation messages is coming

WhatsApp is working on various features to improve the user experience and get back in parallel with the services of the competition. And, among the improvements in the pipeline, there is one that probably will be very welcome to users: the possibility (finally) to modify messages, perhaps containing errors.

The news has just been reported by the prolific WABetaInfo, and it should be in the future (we don’t know exactly when) in WhatsApp’s Android, iOS and desktop clients. Font wrote that the development team is “working on a new option that will consent to edit text messages” and that “there probably won’t be a history of changes to check for previous post changes”.

To date, WhatsApp does not agree to change the messages received in any way. The only weapon available to the user to correct a typo or a spelling mistake is to delete the message (an operation that still keeps a warning on the chat) and rewrite it from scratch. With the change option, the procedure will be much more streamlined and linear, as is already the case with other statutory message services with which the Meta app can compete directly.

WABetaInfo also showed a screenshot of the new modifier key, but did not mention a period within which it will be opportune to see the new feature arrive on the stable versions of the client. Furthermore, WhatsApp has never confirmed the arrival of the option which – although very unlikely – could be eliminated from the company’s plans if the tests do not bring the desired results.

Zuckerberg’s messaging client may add more news in the near future, such as a feature that allows users to “silently” exit groups, with the warning only appearing to group admins. There will also be premium subscription plans for the business version of the application, which will offer the ability to use the same account for up to 10 users.
