WhatsApp keeps updating the features of its App and makes sure to improve user experience. The company has recently introduced a highly anticipated feature called the 'Edit message'.

The 'edit message' feature allows the users to make changes to the messages that have already been sent but the changes need to be made within a 15-minute time frame. Previously, users had to delete entire messages if they sent the wrong message but now users can rectify any mistakes or incorrect information in messages they have already sent.

While WhatsApp keeps rolling out new features to all Android and iPhone users, this feature has recently been made available to iPhone users.

In an official blog post, WhatsApp said, "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."

WhatsApp has released the new "Edit Message" feature for iPhone users in-app version 23.10.77
