Say Goodbye to Messaging Mishaps: Google Messages to Introduce Message Editing Feature

Google Messages, one of the most popular messaging apps, is getting some exciting new features. The latest update includes photomoji, screen effects, noise cancellation for audio messages, and animated stickers. These features are currently available to beta users and will likely be rolled out to everyone soon.

But perhaps the most exciting news is the evidence found that Google is working on a message editing feature. This has been a highly requested feature by users, as it would allow them to fix typos or make changes to messages after they have been sent.

The evidence for this message editing feature comes from the discovery of several new flags in the beta version of the Google Messages app. Additionally, evidence was found in the app’s code that Google is creating a new table in the messages database to store details of edited messages.

Currently, message editing is not part of the RCS standard, but Google has added features to RCS before that weren’t part of the standard, such as end-to-end encryption. It’s possible that Google will work to add message editing to the RCS standard in the future.

Apple’s recent decision to add RCS support to its iMessage application next year could pave the way for more features like message editing to be added to the standard. This would be very convenient for users who have been waiting for these features for a long time.

Unfortunately, there’s no official word on when the message editing feature will be released to the public, but given that there are already hidden flags in the beta version of the application, this could potentially be a planned addition for a future update. Users can look forward to the possibility of seeing this feature released in the first quarter of 2024.
