Meta-owned messenger WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that finally lets its users edit messages within 15 minutes after sending them.

To fix a typo or edit the already sent text in the message, all you need to do now is long-press on a sent message you want to change and choose "Edit" from the menu. The person who received the message will see that it has been edited but will not see its edit history.

WhatsApp Now Lets You Send Messages to Yourself
To see if you have the new feature, start a new chat, and see if your contact is showing up at the top of your contacts list. Once you click on that, you’ll be able to save some notes, files, links, reminders, or anything else you need to remember.

Like all personal messages, media, and calls, messages and edits made will be protected by end-to-end encryption.

The new feature is rolling out globally and should be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
