From Divya Bhati: WhatsApp regularly rolls out new features and updates to improve user privacy and improve their overall experience with the app. The latest update includes a new app for WhatsApp for the Windows desktop, new Groups features, and more. Now moving on to the next one, WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new message editing feature that will allow users to edit the messages sent.

According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is developing a new editing feature for future updates of the app. This feature allows users to edit their sent messages in chat and correct or edit any information in the message instead of deleting the entire message or sending a new one with changes.

WhatsApp’s forthcoming message editing feature will allow users to make changes to any sent message within a 15-minute timeframe. This feature gives users the ability to correct errors or add more information to the original message. Unlike the existing delete feature, which removes an entire message for everyone, this feature is especially useful for those who only want to edit specific words.

Once a message has been edited, both the sender and recipient will see an “edited” label in the message bubble. Furthermore, this feature is only available in the latest WhatsApp version and is limited to editing messages and not media subtitles. The feature is currently in development exclusively for iOS users and is expected to be released for beta testing soon. Users can expect this feature to appear in future app updates.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also developing a new “Video Message” feature for iOS users, allowing users to send 60-second short video notes just like users send voice notes. Similar to the video note feature in Telegram, WhatsApp’s video note feature also allows users to record short videos by pressing the camera button and recording themselves or any video for a limited period of time.

Notably, the feature is not similar to WhatsApp’s existing video recording feature, as users cannot forward or share received video notes. However, WhatsApp allows users to take a screenshot of video notes. In addition, the video notes are encrypted end-to-end, ie apart from the sender and recipient, no third party can access your video message.

Also, Mark Zuckerberg recently launched an improved version of his WhatsApp for Windows app, featuring faster performance and a mobile-like interface. One of the key features of this upgrade is the ability for users to have group video calls of up to eight people, as well as audio calls of up to 32 participants. Additionally, WhatsApp introduced new group management controls that allow admins to control who can join a group using group links.
