iPhone users can test out the new edit and revoke features being tested in WhatsApp

A brilliant new update that is currently being tested lets you edit and delete WhatsApp messages after you’ve sent them.

As long as the recipient hasn’t read them yet, you will be able to press and hold on the message and choose whether to “edit” or “revoke” what you wrote.

The new feature is being trialled in its iPhone beta software, according to the eagle-eyed Whatsapp watchers at @WABetaInfo.

Recipients will simply get a note saying “the sender revoked the message”.

WhatsApp have not confirmed the feature, and it’s unclear when it will be rolled out.

It’s also said to be trialling live tracking features, so you can send a pin drop and real-time location information in a group message.

The app is hugely popular among Brits, but they could be in for a shock later this year after Whatsapp dropped the bombshell that it will no longer work on millions of phones.

In a statement, the messaging giant said: “As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use.

“So, by the end of 2016, we will be ending support for WhatsApp Messenger on some mobile platforms.

“While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they don’t offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future.”
