WhatsApp to roll out this iOS 16 like edit feature. (Bloomberg)

Apple recently rolled out its latest iOS 16 version for all iPhone users, which rolled out a bunch of nifty features. One of them is a boon for those who make frequent typos or even send messages accidentally. With the arrival of iOS 16, iPhone users can make changes to sent messages and even unsend the message itself. Now, WhatsApp is on way to bring a similar feature. WhatsApp's update tracker, WabetaInfo has confirmed that WhatsApp is now working on bringing the ability to edit messages in a future update of the Desktop app. This function has been discovered in the most recent Android beta.

“It's been a long time since the latest news about editing messages but finally, we have something new to share with you. Fortunately, the development of the feature that lets us edit messages has not been abandoned and WhatsApp still plans to implement it in a future release of the app,” WabetaInfo mentioned in a blogpost.
