Messenger will now let you edit messages within 15 minutes of sending

  • December 12, 2023

Meta just released a deal breaker feature: the ability to change messages that have already been sent. Users can now change any message they sent within 15 minutes of sending it thanks to this new update. To change something in a Messenger message, all you have to do is tap on it. When the first choice comes up, click “More.” Then, click “Edit,” which is next to “Forward,” “Bump,” and “Remove.”

The ‘Edit’ feature will be available only to messages sent in the last 15 minutes. Messages sent before 15 minutes from now will not have this feature available when you tap on that message.

In the official announcement, Meta also said that users can still report edited messages. Moreover, even after editing, Meta can see the previous editions of the message.
