NEW YORK: Next time when you send a message intended for your girlfriend mistakenly to someone else on WhatsApp, relax as you may be able to revoke such messages in the near future.

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 2.17.1.869 platform.

Last month, WhatsApp launched a video calling feature from India which was rolled out globally to other countries.

The feature is available on all platforms -- Android, iOS and Windows. 

With 160 million users in India, WhatsApp is available in more than 50 different languages around the world and in 10 Indian languages. Nearly 100 million calls are being made on the platform daily worldwide.
