Some people find texting easy and more convenient than talking to the person. Unless of course, you’ve accidentally texted the wrong person before and embarrassed yourself in the process.
To counter that problem, WhatsApp is working on a new feature that allow users to recall, revoke, or even edit text messages that have already been delivered to contacts in the chat app.
According to reports from WABeta info, the new feature has already been spotted on a number of iPhone beta version apps. The upcoming WhatsApp feature to retract or edit messages sent by accident, will work by long pressing the delivered message. It is believed that this feature also extends to group chat messages.
Although the edit and revoke function will allow users to change the message content or pull the text from the conversation (as if it never existed) respectively, the ability to revoke your messages will only work if the recipient hasn’t read your text. If it’s a double tick check mark in blue colour, then you’re unlucky.
As per sources online, WhatsApp is also reportedly working on a new way to display a user’s status update. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see how soon WhatsApp will roll out these new features to all of its users.
