People use different messaging apps for communicating with friends and family. We have different experiences with each messaging app. From WhatsApp to Facebook Messenger, WeChat or Telegram, we sometimes experience a sinking feeling when we unconsciously send a message we don’t want to send. We feel really bad and hope we could take the message back or if any miracle could happen that will allow us to edit the message.
Telegram App Now Lets You Edit Sent Messages
Encoded messaging app Telegram, developed by Russian tycoon Pavel Durov, who also founded the Russian type of Facebook named Vkontakte, has propelled a feature to do just that.
Now a message that has been sent on the app can still be edited thanks to Telegram. This works through all Telegram chats, comprising groups and one-on-one conversations. The messages that have been edited have a small “edited” label near them that conveys people that they have been amended.
Telegram has many other security features, like “secret chats” that support end-to-end encryption and self-deleting messages. It claims to have almost 60 million active subscribers, compared to WhatsApp’s 1 billion.
Editing text messages or recalling is not imaginable on most prevalent messaging apps, such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. Though it is very easy to retrieve a message on Blackberry’s widespread chat facility BBM, and obviously Snapchat will put an end to your message totally after a certain duration.
However you may not be able to retrace or edit sent messages on WhatsApp but there are some other furtive deceits to make your experience better, such as reading messages without the blue ticks and how to add different features to your messages.
