Whatsapp allows its users to recall and edit the sent messages.
Perhaps this could be the greatest service any media could ever think of. How sorry we feel and how bad we experience when any text is being sent when it was not supposed to be. All that is left is remorse and maybe a reaction.
But let’s feel pleased that Whatsapp has come up with a solution that will ease the problem down to greater extent. Yes! It finally did it.
Now any Whatsapp user can recall or edit the wrongly sent text. However, the feature is not without an ‘if’ factor. The text can be recalled or edited IF the recipient has not read it.
Whatsapp has been putting its best to make the instant media sharing service more reliable and friendly. You can observe the massive changes that took place in the initial version of the service. All these changes made the user approach more confident and inclusive, with an extra plus of the latest update.

As per the report of IbTimes, there is still a lot to be shared about the upcoming feature. For example, there is no confirmation whether these message could be edited any time or under any time bound conditions.
It is however certain, according to Whatsapp Beta (WABetaInfo) tweet, that once the message is being read, it is no more available for editing.
Along with editing, you can even delete the entire draconic text you do not want to represent yourself.
Most interestingly, this feature will work on non-text messages as well, i.e. any audio file, image or document will also be discarded from sender and the receiver if no more required or wanted.
It is rumoured that the feature has been rolled out to the latest update of Whatsapp Beta 188.8.131.529 for iOS platforms; however, it will require official confirmation from the messenger to be accepted.
Another rumour reports that the feature is still under performance check.
