An editing and revoking message feature may be coming for users of messenger application WhatsApp.

The possibility was first announced by Twitter account @WABetaInfo, an account that contains information and insider news relevant to the application.

According to the Twitter account, as reported by kompas.com, the edit and revoke feature is already available in WhatsApp Beta 2.17.1.869 beta version for iOS but is still disabled by default because it is still being developed.

It is also said that the edit or revoke feature would only be available for recently sent messages. The Twitter account did not specify the maximum age of the message but predicted that it could only be performed for messages sent within the past few days.
