WhatsApp will now allow all its users to have the possibility to rectify errors or change their mind after having sent a message to the recipient. They will allow you to edit all the messages sent, as indicated on Tuesday by the social network.
After observing how to modify the “delete messages” option to correct misspellings or simply allow you to change the way in which the message was to be sent, add this editing option that, as WhatsApp has announced, “from correcting a simple spelling error to add more context to a message, we’re excited to give you more control over your chats.”
The entity indicates that the user will only have to press and hold on the sent message and choose the “edit” option from the menu. But remember that this possibility for the user to modify a text only his, will be allowed up to fifteen minutes after sending the message.
Recipients will know if it has been edited or not
As with deleted messages, so that users who receive the message know that the emissary has modified them, this will happen because the edited texts will appear as “edited”, but without showing the history of editions.
As with all personal messages, multimedia and calls, all messages and changes made by a user are protected by end-to-end recording, remember WhatsApp. This feature has started rolling out to users around the world and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
