Google Messages Introduces Message Editing Feature

Google Messages has recently started testing a new feature called ‘messages editing’, as reported by sources. This feature was initially rumored to be in development back in December 2023 when some flags related to message editing were discovered. The feature is now undergoing testing with beta testers who have access to it. This indicates that Google is in the final stages of implementing the feature, and it may be available to all users worldwide in the near future.

According to a report from Phone Arena, the ‘messages editing’ feature is included in the latest beta version of the Google Messages app, specifically the messages.android_20240506_04-RC00.phone.openbeta_dynamiccom.google.android.apps.messaging. Users who are part of the Google Play Store beta program and have this version installed can now edit messages after sending them. However, there is a limitation to this feature – it will only work if the recipient of the message is also using the same beta version of the app. If the recipient is not on the beta version, the edits will not be visible on their end.

Tipster AssembleDebug also confirmed the feature and revealed that the editing time limit is set to 15 minutes. This is similar to WhatsApp’s edit time limit, although there were previous claims that the time limit might be extended to 30 minutes. The new feature includes a pencil icon that users can click on to edit messages. By long-pressing the message and selecting the pencil icon, users can access a text box displaying the original message for editing. After making the necessary changes, users can confirm the edit by tapping on a checkmark icon, and the edited message will be displayed to the recipient.

In addition to message editing, Google is also introducing an edit history feature. This feature will allow all participants in a conversation to view the original messages and any subsequent edits made. Users will be able to see all the different versions of a message that have been edited. While the feature is currently being tested with beta users, Google has not yet provided a timeline for the global rollout of this feature.
