We are used to the fact that messages in many applications can be edited. For example, the same VK application has for some time been able to edit a sent message to another user. Is there such an opportunity in the WhatsApp messenger?
Alas, at the time of writing, editing messages is not possible – such a function is not even provided in the official application. But wait, do not rush to close this page, we have one simple hack for you – you can delete the message that needs to be edited and send the correct message. There is a nuance – you need to do this within 68 minutes (relevant at the time of writing), and if more time has passed, you will not be able to delete the message from the interlocutor.
So, we open the chat and see the list of messages, for example:
Click on the message we want to delete and hold until the menu appears at the top of the window. In it we select the basket icon.
You can choose not only one, but also several messages at once.
After clicking on the basket, you will need to confirm the action, and select the option “Delete at all”.
If you select “Delete from me”, the message will be deleted only from you.
The message has been deleted, before you – a notification.
What will your interlocutor see? He will see almost the same thing as you:
By the way, it doesn’t matter if your interlocutor managed to read the message or not..
The main thing is not to miss the moment while deleting the message is possible both with you and the contact. Otherwise, the option to delete the message will be reserved only for you. The confirmation:
Perhaps in the future it will be possible to edit sent messages on WhatsApp.
