Ever wished you could unsend a message on WhatsApp or edit it? If yes, it looks like WhatsApp might let you do that soon.

Delete or Edit Messages After Sending

WhatsApp had been testing new features on iPhone beta version that let you revoke or edit messages that you have already sent to your contact. As  WABetaInfo reports, it seems that the company is testing the same for Android.

The edit and recall/revoke message has reportedly appeared on the newest beta version of WhatsApp for Android, however. It is disabled by default. A rooted phone is needed to enable these features manually.

It should be kept in mind that while the sources of the news are reliable enough, there is no word yet from WhatsApp Inc about when it will be available for general users.

The company has been adding new features to the app, recently, after announcing that WhatsApp will no longer work on old devices, the company has redesigned the app’s storage usage screen and added the ability to queue messages on iPhone version of the app.

Apart from edit option, as we mentioned, WhatsApp for Android users will also get a revoke option which will mean that the sent message never existed. The upcoming WhatsApp feature to edit or revoke sent message will work by long pressing a sent message. However, this WhatsApp feature to revoke and edit sent messages will probably work only in the case if the recipient hasn't seen the message from the sender. Currently, WhatsApp lets users delete messages on the device level and the deleted messages remain visible to the recipient.
