Google Messages app now has text editing feature in beta

Google Messages app now has text editing feature in beta

If you’re looking for the ability to edit sent text in the Google Messages app, here’s some good news. Reports suggest that Google has rolled out the text editing feature in Google Messages for beta users. Well, the text editing feature is not something new. Earlier this year, in February, it was reported that Google was working on the same topic.

However, the latest news came via Android Authority, which spotted a post on X by user @Jhowkira2000. The user adds that the ability to edit the text of Google messages is now available on devices that belong to him, his friends and loved ones.


The time limit for editing sent text in the Google Messages app is 15 minutes

It’s worth noting that the feature only works if both parties in the conversation have it. User X then adds in the thread that the editing time is 15 minutes. Additionally, the original message is visible to both parties in the conversation. That’s not all; the conversation will also show that the sender edited the message.




Previously, AssembleDebug managed to enable the feature with some tinkering. But now, beta users already have the text editing feature in the Google Messages app without any tinkering. There is no news on when Google plans to roll out the feature in a stable manner. But it could soon be widely available.

When the feature is available, you can edit the text sent through the Google Messages app by long-pressing it and tapping the pencil icon available in the toolbar above. In short, the new feature will allow you to say goodbye to all your typos when texting with your friends or family.

Overall, the addition of text editing functionality in the Google Messages app is a new effort by Google to improve its proprietary Android messaging app. Most recently, Google added a voice ambience feature in the messaging app.
