The most widely used mobile messaging application in the world is constantly being updated. The developers of WhatsApp works every day to continue improving the experience of its users and one of the most anticipated changes is coming in the next few days.
In its beginnings, this platform did not allow deleting messages sent by mistake or simply with spelling errors, which caused conflicts in some cases. With the passage of time, WhatsApp included an option to permanently delete certain messages. Although always with a mark that realized that the user had deleted it.
On social media, a large number of people were crying out for the ability to edit messages like the case of Facebook and now Twitter. Finally, the wait will come to an end. Or at least that seems to be according to information from WABetaInfo, the site specialized in the messaging service that tests the updates before their official launch.
Apparently, users who want to modify a message already sent will have a period of 15 minutes to do so, in which it will not be possible to read while it is being edited. However, once corrected, a legend will remain that will show that it underwent changes, although it will not be possible to access previous versions.
Keep in mind that contacts will not be able to see the modification history or the editing time through the “Message info” menu either. As in other WhatsApp updates, It will first be available on devices with the iOS operating system in version 126.96.36.199 and later it will come to Android.
On the other hand, the company owned by Meta added a change for the version of the software that is downloaded on PC or Mac: the possibility of making video calls without the need for the phone, with up to eight participants at the same time.
