WhatsApp is said to be working on a new edit message option that will allow the users to rectify typos in the messages.
In another news update, WhatsApp has begun rolling out different skin tones for message reactions starting with selected users.
Currently, there is no option to edit the messages other than deleting your previous message and then creating a new one.
However, once the edit feature is rolled out to the general public, users won’t have to go through all the hassle and can simply edit the message with the new option.
Edit message option feature was first reported by WABetaInfo, a popular WhatsApp beta tracker.
As you can see in the screenshot shared by the WABetaInfo, the new edit option will be available alongside info and copy options that appear when a user long taps a particular message on the app.
Besides working on the edit message option, WhatsApp is reportedly testing the support for different skin tones for message reaction.
As per WABetaInfo reports, the skin tones for message reactions will be introduced to users starting with WhatsApp for Android beta version 126.96.36.199.
Additionally, after the 188.8.131.52 update, WhatsApp will change skin tones for message reactions based on the skin tone selected in the primary emojis.
Note: You can change the skin tones for Thumbs Up and Folded Hands emojis, the rest of the emojis don’t support skin tone change.
