WhatsApp, owned by Meta has introduced a new feature on its platform allowing its users to edit a message up to 15 minutes after sending it.

In its blog post, Meta said a user will not worry after sending a message with mistakes.

"For the moments when you make a mistake or simply change your mind, you can now edit your sent messages on WhatsApp, 15 minutes after sending a message," the post read.

"So you don’t have to worry if you duck it up." The feature will be enabled globally, and once a user has updated the app, they'll be able to make the changes.

To be able to edit the message, a user will have to long-press the text and choose the edit option in the drop-down menu.

However, when the sent message is changed, the text will show an edited label. The new feature will now see users slowly avoiding the delete the for-all.

WhatsApp now joins iMessage by Apple, Telegram and Signal which has for the longest time enabled its users to edit messages after sending them.

Twitter in its numerous changes also introduced the editing option in tweets, only to users who have subscribed to Twitter Blue.

WhatsApp has been introducing numerous new features in the platform including reacting to status, sending an audio as a status and reacting to messages.
