WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging app, has released a new beta version for Android – version 184.108.40.206. This latest update brings several new features and improvements to the app, including the ability to edit sent messages for some select users.
The key feature rolling out with this update would allow users to edit messages they have already sent. This feature has been highly requested by WhatsApp users for some time, as it would give them the ability to correct mistakes or clarify unclear messages that were perhaps sent accidentally.
As reported by WABetaInfo, the feature works by allowing users to tap on a sent message and select the “Edit” option from the top menu. They could then make changes to the message, and the edited version would be visible to all recipients of the original message.

Not all users enrolled in the WhatsApp Beta Program are currently able to test this feature, as it appears to be rolling out to only a certain amount of users, suggesting a staged rollout. Hopefully this won’t take long to roll out to the stable version of WhatsApp, as I anticipate it would likely be welcomed by many users. However, it remains to be seen if and when the feature will become widely available to all.
