WhatsApp Is Getting iMessage-Like Edit Feature

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced today that WhatsApp is getting edit messages feature akin to Apple’s iMessage.

The feature has started rolling out today and will be available to users in the coming days and weeks.

From correcting a simple misspelling to adding extra context to a message, we’re excited to bring you more control over your chats. All you need to do is long-press on a sent message and choose ‘Edit’ from the menu for up to fifteen minutes after.

According to the official announcement, this feature will enable users to edit sent messages for up to 15 minutes. This limit is same as imposed by Apple on iMessage.

While iMessage does keep a log of history of edited messages for the recipient to see, WhatsApp doesn’t appear to have this feature as yet and will only show a small “edited” text so that receiver knows the original message sent to him or her was edited.

Apple’s iMessage also restricts users to edit a message up to five times while WhatsApp doesn’t appear to have this restriction either.
