Messages sent on WhatsApp can now be edited for 15 minutes. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this on Monday. This feature has started rolling out for the users. All users will get this feature in the next few weeks.
To edit, the message has to be long pressed. After this, the message can be changed by clicking on the edit option in the menu. Along with the message, 'Edited' will also appear, so that the person receiving the message will know that there has been a change in it. However, this change will not be visible.
WhatsApp said that when you make a mistake in the message or change your mind, you will be able to edit your message. This will fix grammar mistakes and add extra information to the message. This will increase the control of users on their chat. Edited messages like personal messages, calls and media will also be protected by end-to-end encryption.
Messaging app WhatsApp has also launched the chat lock feature. Through this, users can lock any group or individual chat. After this feature, only you will be able to access your chats. For this you have to use device PIN or biometrics lock.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave information about this feature through a Facebook post. He told that the new lock feature in WhatsApp will make your chat more secure. The chats will be in a password protected folder. Because of this, the content of the notification or message will not be visible.
