Meta-owned instant messaging app is reportedly working on host of new features. According to reports, the messaging app is testing three features such as the Undo button, the edit text messages option and the double verification feature.
The features are currently being tested and none of them have made it to the final release yet. According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp may soon allow users to edit messages after sending them. The report also claims that an Undo button is also in the works. In addition to edit and Undo, WhatsApp is also reportedly working on the double verification feature. It is pertinent to mention that Apple has rolled out the edit messages feature for iMessage. The announcement was done during the ongoing WWDC 2022.
Edit messages after sending
The reported upcoming edit option in WhatsApp will allow users to edit their text messages after sending them. Currently, users can only delete the message sent by them.
An Undo button is also under development by the WhatsApp. Once functional, this feature will help users to retrieve the chat that they have deleted by pressing the “delete for me” option instead of selecting “delete for everyone.” The undo button will help you rectify your mistake within a certain time frame.
Double verification feature
To enhance security, WhatsApp is also working on a double verification feature. Under the double verification feature, users will be asked to enter an additional security code, which will be sent to your registered mobile number while trying to log into their WhatsApp account from another smartphone. Currently, users need to enter only one 6-digit verification code, which they receive on their registered number. The double verification feature will let users know about the fact that their account is being accessed elsewhere.
In addition to these three buttons, WhatsApp is also working on the ability to export your WhatsApp backup from Google Drive for a future update.
