Instead of deleting a mistake you’ll be able to edit the text.
Another new feature will soon be added to WhatsApp’s instant messaging service.
Soon, users will be able to alter messages that have already been sent on the messaging app owned by Meta, a division of Facebook.
The ability to amend a message will, however, only be available for 15 minutes after it has been delivered.
The availability of this capability to all WhatsApp users globally was revealed by Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, in the upcoming weeks.
It comes after Meta shared that a new Chat Lock feature is to be unveiled on WhatsApp.
Chat Lock will mean users are able to lock and hide conversations by giving the option to remove a chat thread from the app’s main inbox.
The messages will then be kept in a hidden folder that can be opened by a password or facial recognition/fingerprint.
To use the new function, it will be pretty easy. All you’ll need to do is tap the name of a person or group chat then select the Chat Lock option (under disappearing message).
The function is set to be rolled out across the world, including the UAE, soon.
