WhatsApp announced this feature back in May along with other features. These features were then rolled out to the app’s Beta users for testing.

WhatsApp is constantly coming up with new features for its users. They have been testing a feature which allows one to edit their messages on the app. The feature, which will soon be made available to Beta users, will enable a user to edit his/her messages for any spelling errors or wrong inputs. Another feature which allows users to discreetly exit groups is also under development.
