Meta Platforms Inc-owned messaging app WhatsApp is all set to roll out the much anticipated feature of editing a message, permitting its users to alter messages as long as 15 minutes after they are sent.

In a blog post, WhatsApp stated, "For the moments when you make a mistake, or simply change your mind, you can now edit your sent messages."

The blog post stated, "From correcting a simple misspelling to adding extra context to a message, we're excited to bring you more control over your chat."

Simply long-press on a sent message to use the new tool, then select "Edit" from the menu.

While your friends won't be able to see the edit history, the word "edited" will appear next to edited messages so they can see the change.

"As with all personal messages, media and calls, your messages and the edits you make are protected by end-to-end encryption," WhatsApp added.

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta, also wrote on his Facebook page about the new feature, "You can now edit your WhatsApp messages up to 15 mins after they're sent!".

WhatsApp introduces new 'chat lock' feature to hide private conversations

WhatsApp on Monday made the announcement that it would be introducing a new feature called "Chat Lock." This feature is intended to provide users with an additional layer of security for their most private conversations. 

The app will also hide the contents of that chat from notifications when you lock it. You can lock a chat by selecting the lock option by tapping the name of a one-on-one or group chat. To uncover these visits, you need to gradually pull down on your inbox and enter your telephone secret phrase or biometric.

In a blog post, the company stated, "We think this feature will be great for people who have reason to share their phones from time to time with a family member or those moments where someone else is holding your phone at the exact moment an extra special chat arrives."

Meanwhile, the CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg announced the newest update of the social media messaging platform and said, "new locked chats in WhatsApp make your conversations more private. They're hidden in a password protected folder and notifications won't show sender or message content."
