According to the WABetaInfo account on Twitter, the instant messaging app WhatsApp has reportedly added the features to revoke and edit the sent messages in a beta version testing.

"WhatsApp has added in beta the possibility to edit messages that you already sent. It is actually disabled by default and it's under development," the WABetaInfo's tweet read.

But the users will be able to edit only recent messages and not the old ones.

According to the WABetaInfo, the feature is currently available in WhatsApp Beta for the iOS platform.
