Users of WhatsApp may soon be able to modify their messages.
WhatsApp just introduced the message response function, which enables users to send emoji replies to a message through the service. It’s already been discovered that it’s working on allowing users to alter texts they’ve sent. Other messaging and microblogging systems, such as Discord and Twitter, already have this capability, allowing users to correct any mistakes, typos, or modifications to a piece of material after it has been floated.
Publication claims “probably no older versions of modified communications” are available for review. Although the functionality is still under development, WhatsApp’s intentions may alter before it is released as part of the stable upgrade. Despite the fact that the functionality has been seen on WhatsApp for Android, it is expected to appear on iOS and desktop platforms as well.
WhatsApp, meanwhile, has announced that it would no longer support iPhones running iOS 10 and iOS 11. The instant messaging network is doing so because some of its latest features may not work on iOS 10 and iOS 11 devices. According to the source, the change will take effect on October 24, 2022. WhatsApp will continue to work on iPhones running iOS 12 and higher, allowing users to take use of the new capabilities, such as message responses.
WhatsApp has verified that iOS 12 is the preferred iOS version for running WhatsApp, as stated in the FAQ section of the app. It’s common for instant messaging companies to change their software over time, which raises the amount of resources it needs to run well.
