WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging platform, with over 2 billion monthly active users in over 180 countries. The fact that WhatsApp has such a large worldwide user base is one of the main reasons for its success.
Users recently saw the app add the ability to react to messages, but it now looks like as part of the next version, users will be able to edit their own texts.
Furthermore, future updates could include everything from group polls to Premium service for users, demonstrating that the list of potential improvements in the works is extensive.
However, due to Wabetainfo’s specialists, there are more details on a new version that allows users to edit text messages. Users on Android, iOS and even computers will be able to access the new capability.

The news is interesting since it looks like the prominent messaging platform is now focusing on an area that many people have been asking for: messaging tools.
The feature isn’t unusual; it was first announced roughly five years ago for social media platforms like Twitter.
WhatsApp, on the other hand, did not pay attention and dismissed the idea after only five days. However, now that users are getting additional reports regarding a new edit button that users will utilize for text messages, the excitement among regular users is increasing again.
Users no longer have to worry about typographical errors spoiling discussions because all they have to do now is click edit after sending a message.
Hold on, there’s more: users won’t see any edit history, but the fact that the update is still in beta means users could be in for some shocks if the business wishes to change its decision.
Currently, there is no information on what the actual time frame for making such modifications will be, which means there is no set date for the debut.
