You can now use edit your WhatsApp message for up to 15 minutes!


You Can Now Edit Your WhatsApp Messages!

On Monday, May 22, 2023, Mark Zuckerberg announced that you will now be able to edit your WhatsApp messages up to 15 minutes after they’re sent!

This is, arguably, one of the most requested features to be added to WhatsApp, since many of us suffer from “fat fingers syndrome”, while others are forced to suffer through our typos!

Before this feature was introduced, the only way to “fix” a typo, was to post the corrected message, and delete the previous message with the typo(s). The only problem is you end up with a ton of “message deleted” remnants.

Here is how you can edit your WhatsApp messages:

  1. Long-press on a sent message, and a menu will drop down.
  2. Select the Edit option from the drop-down menu.
  3. After editing your message, simply press Enter to save the edit.

Do note that the edited message will display “Edited” next to it, so your recipients know that it has been edited.

Also, this Edit option is limited to 15 minutes after you send a WhatsApp message. You cannot edit a message if you wait longer than 15 minutes after sending that message!

You Can Edit Your WhatsApp Messages… In Coming Weeks!

You can give it a try, but this feature likely isn’t available yet in your WhatsApp. Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp was just announcing a new feature.

You will have the ability to edit your WhatsApp messages for 15 minutes in coming weeks, as the update is rolled out globally.

For the moments when you make a mistake, or simply change your mind, you can now edit your sent messages.

From correcting a simple misspelling to adding extra context to a message, we’re excited to bring you more control over your chats. All you need to do is long-press on a sent message and choose ‘Edit’ from the menu for up to fifteen minutes after.

Edited messages will display ‘edited’ alongside them, so those you’re messaging are aware of the correction without showing edit history. As with all personal messages, media and calls, your messages and the edits you make are protected by end-to-end encryption.

This feature has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
