WhatsApp lets users edit messages with 15-minute time limit
Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Monday announced that billions of WhatsApp users can now modify a message within 15 minutes of sending it.
Earlier, if we had sent the wrong message to someone on WhatsApp, we had no option but to delete it. It was a worse situation when we sent an unwanted message by mistake to someone; they read it before we deleted it, and it caused us embarrassment. But, it won't be a problem anymore.
WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that allows you to edit a sent message and resend it.
The new feature is also helpful if you make a mistake in your message or simply change your mind after sending it.

"From correcting a simple misspelling to adding extra context to a message, we’re excited to bring you more control over your chats. All you need to do is long-press on a sent message and choose ‘Edit’ from the menu for up to fifteen minutes after.
Edited messages will display ‘edited’ alongside them, so those you’re messaging are aware of the correction. As with all personal messages, media, and calls, your messages and the edits you make are protected by end-to-end encryption.
This feature has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone, including in India, in the coming weeks.
Last week, WhatsApp had announced a feature called 'Chat Lock', which lets users protect most intimate conversations behind one more layer of security.
"Locking a chat takes that thread out of the inbox and puts it behind its own folder that can only be accessed with your device password or biometric, like a fingerprint. It also automatically hides the contents of that chat in notifications, too," WhatsApp had said in a statement.
One can lock a chat by tapping the name of a one-to-one or group and selecting the lock option.
