Google Messages now lets you edit RCS chats: Here’s how to do it – The Times of India

1 minute, 12 seconds Read

Google has rolled out a much-anticipated feature to its Messages app: the ability to edit sent messages within RCS chats. This edit button gives users a 15-minute window to fix typos.
For those unaware, RCS stands for Rich Communication Services, and is an upgrade to traditional SMS/MMS texting. It offers several features that make messaging richer and more like what you might experience with apps like WhatsApp or iMessage.
This update brings Google Messages on par with other popular messaging apps like WhatsApp and Apple’s iMessage, which already offer message editing functionalities.
How to edit a sent message
Editing an RCS message in Google Messages is straightforward. Simply long-press on the message you want to edit and select the new “Edit” option from the pop-up menu. This opens the message in a compose window, allowing you to make your changes. Once satisfied, hit the send button again, and the revised message will replace the original in the chat conversation.
When a message is edited, a small notification will appear below the message indicating it’s been “Edited.”
The 15-minute time limit for editing
There’s a time limit attached to this editing power. You only have 15 minutes from the time you send a message to modify it. After that window closes, the edit option disappears, and the original message remains.
It’s important to note that this editing feature is currently limited to RCS chats. Standard SMS/MMS messages still won’t offer editing functionality.
