WhatsApp is undoubtedly one of the most popular messaging platforms in the world. Due to its popularity, developers are constantly working on adding new features and improving existing ones.
Recently, WhatsApp beta introduced a new feature that lets users sort messages by date and hide their online status. Now, a report by WABetaInfo suggests that the messaging platform may soon allow users to edit sent messages.
While it is still unclear how this feature might work, it is highly likely that WhatsApp will add an ‘edited’ label to the message, so that the other person knows that the message has been edited.
It is also rumored that users may be able to edit messages for a certain time period. It looks like the ability to edit sent messages is still under development. As part of WhatsApp beta for Android 126.96.36.199 update, edit message functionality is not available to beta testers right now

It is interesting to note that in May this year, WhatsApp was working on the same feature but suddenly decided to drop it without any explanation. Unfortunately, there is no word on when this feature will arrive in the stable version of WhatsApp, so we may have to wait a while before it is available to everyone.
Earlier this month, a report suggested that WhatsApp may stop working on older iPhones in early October and has started alerting iOS 10 and iOS 11 users about it.
The Indian government has proposed a new law that will intercept encrypted messages on instant messaging apps like WhatsApp and Signal.
When users flock to a new app in 2022, the first thing they check for is end-to-end encryption. This feature prevents anyone from reading the conversation except the sender and the recipient. WhatsApp claims that if a report is registered it only has access to certain messages. Otherwise, no one can access and read the chat.
