In a move to enhance user experience, instant messaging platform WhatsApp, owned by Meta, has unveiled a new caption message edit feature for both Android and iOS devices. The feature, previously limited to text messages, has now been expanded to encompass media messages. To determine if this feature is accessible, users can simply tap and hold on a recent message that includes a caption, as reported by WABetaInfo.

This enhancement allows users to rectify and modify captions for various media types, including videos, GIFs, and documents, all within 15 minutes of sending the message. One of the key benefits of this new addition is that it empowers users to correct errors and enhance the overall quality of their conversations.

By extending this functionality to encompass images, videos, GIFs, and documents, the platform ensures that users can improve the clarity and context of their messages even after they've been sent. It's important to note that the ability to edit captions for messages is restricted to the device from which the message was originally sent.

Currently, the caption message edit feature is available to some users who have updated WhatsApp for iOS from the App Store and WhatsApp for Android from the Play Store to the latest version. The feature is expected to roll out to more users gradually in the upcoming days.
