Google Messages, the most used messaging application on Android, should soon allow its users to edit missives after they have been sent. This new feature, already available for certain beta users, is inspired by the approach of WhatsApp, the main competitor of Google's app.

While Google Messages brought several recent improvements, such as the management of unwanted messages in group conversations, the absence of the function of editing sent messages, available on most competing apps, was not expected to last. Until now, Google Messages did not allow users to correct typos or edit their missives once sent. An oversight that the Mountain View firm is preparing to correct with the introduction of this new functionality.

According to information shared on X/Twitter by AssembleDebug, this feature is currently being tested for Google Messages beta users. Initially, users could make changes up to 30 minutes after sending the affected message, but it appears that this period has been reduced to 15 minutes in the latest updates.

To do this, simply keep your finger pressed on the bubble to modify, then select the corresponding option in the toolbar. After making the necessary changes, all you would have to do is press Send for the message to be updated. Edited messages would be marked as such, and the original text would remain visible to everyone in the message details.

Although this feature has been in testing for several weeks, there is no announcement yet regarding its global rollout. However, while the Google I/O should be an opportunity for the company to present its software improvements, it is likely that this option will soon be available to all users.
