Meta-owned messaging app WhatsApp is working on a feature to introduce an ‘Edit button’ for messages for the desktop user and will soon roll out for its users.
Before WhatsApp, this feature of edit button is available on Facebook and Instagram, while recently Twitter also announced to introduce an edit tweet feature.
The latest news in this regard is that the company is working on the feature of introducing the edit button for desktop users besides Android and iOS.
According to Wabetainfo, a website that monitors WhatsApp changes, the application’s experts are busy working on introducing an edit button for desktop users.
The report said that the edit button will initially be given access to limited users and will likely be rolled out first to users, using WhatsApp on a desktop i.e. computer or laptop.
According to the report, it is not yet clear whether users will be able to see the edit history after clicking the edit button and it is also not known how long users will be able to edit the message.
The report clarified that it is too early to say when the edit button will be introduced, but confirmed that WhatsApp experts are busy working on the edit button.
The report also hinted that the edit button could potentially be rolled out simultaneously to desktop and smartphone users on a limited scale.
