WhatsApp has been discovered to be working on the ability to edit text messages allowing us to correct any typos. This will allow users to edit messages on WhatsApp after they have been sent without having to totally delete them from the conversation and start over. WhatsApp, on the other hand, has begun to accommodate varied skin tones for message reactions. The new feature is presently accessible to some WhatsApp for Android beta testers as part of the most recent beta release.

WhatsApp is working on allowing users to edit their text messages in a future version after providing the ability to reply to messages as a new messaging feature. According to WABetaInfo WhatsApp has begun testing the ability for users to edit their text messages in chats. It would display in addition to the existing Info and Copy choices that appear when you long-press a text message in the app.

As per the report, WhatsApp’s ability to edit messages was first announced on Twitter 5 years ago, but WhatsApp removed it after a few days. Finally, WhatsApp is working on reintroducing the text message edit option.

WABetaInfo has published a few screenshots to demonstrate how the edit option on WhatsApp would work. There will most likely be no edit history to review prior versions of modified messages, but as this feature is still in development, their plans may change before it is released. Furthermore, details concerning the time window during which users will be able to update their messages are yet unknown but once beta testing is completed, it may be released to the general public.

Even though this screenshot is from the WhatsApp beta for Android, WhatsApp is working on bringing the same feature to the WhatsApp beta for iOS and Desktop.

Separately WhatsApp is testing support for multiple skin tones for message reactions, in addition to working on the edit option. According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.22.13.4 has already been handed out to select users. According to the screenshots that have been posted, Folded Hands and Thumbs Up now have skin tones based on the most recently used skin tone emoji from our main emoji list. So, for example, if you recently submitted a Light Skin Tone Thumbs Up, it will appear in the reactions tray as well.
