Altering messages on WhatsApp is already a reality, this is how it works
Some time ago WhatsApp implemented an option that made it possible to delete the messages that a user sent to a chat, this tool was born in response to the need to have a tool that would allow correcting errors that could be present in a text or other content shared in a chat. conversation.
However, this option would seem to be insufficient for users who often make mistakes with the texts they send to a chat, and therefore the popular instant messaging platform is fine-tuning details to implement an option that helps to resolve this situation.
The platform has been developing a functionality for a couple of months that allows the editing of text messages sent to a conversation, as indicated by the specialized press last June. In fact, since 2017 WhatsApp had considered incorporating this tool into its service, but later its development was ruled out to give priority to other functions.
Now it has become known that the platform is developing a function that would reveal to users when a text sent to a chat has been edited by its author, this will be done through a label that will appear next to the modified message.
In fact, WaBetaInfo, a portal specialized in filtering WhatsApp news, shared a series of screenshots that expose the format that the app would use to update messages that have been edited by their authors.
Similarly, WaBetaInfo stated that users would have a maximum time of 15 minutes to edit the message that was sent to a chat, after that period the recipient will not see changes in the text.
It should be noted that this functionality is currently only present in the latest update of the beta version of WhatsApp for Android, therefore, the ability to edit messages is a feature that can only be accessed by beta tester users of the app .
At the moment, WhatsApp has not issued an official statement on this tool and because it is in the development phase, its launch date is unknown in the official app.
