On WhatsApp, your toxic friend will be able to edit his messages instead of deleting them
WhatsApp is launching a feature that should ease some of the tension caused by the mention “post has been deleted”. In a short blog post, the company belonging to the Meta galaxy indicates that users will now be able to modify messages after sending. A time window of 15 minutes is provided for this purpose.
“Made a mistake? Changed your mind? No problem: you can now edit the messages you’ve sentexplains WhatsApp. Whether it’s correcting a misspelling or putting a message into context, we’re happy to give you more control over your chats. Just long-press on a message and select Edit from the menu within fifteen minutes of sending it”.
The fashionable content editing function is approached differently on different platforms. On Twitter, this option is paid for via the subscription to Twitter Blue, and the public is authorized to consult the old versions of the tweet. In the context of more personal conversations, such as on WhatsApp, there is obviously no question of being able to consult the old version of the message. Note that most instant messengers allow at least deleting a message, with the time frame varying from platform to platform. iMessage, since iOS 16, also allows content modification.
“As with all personal messages, media and calls, your messages and any changes you make to them are protected by end-to-end encryption”finally specifies WhatsApp. This feature is rolling out globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks“.
WhatsApp is a free and secure instant messenger that allows you to keep in touch with all your friends or family, you can download and install it on all platforms.
