Text Rewind – Google’s Messages App Testing Editing Feature for Sent Messages!

To elevate its Messages app to new heights, Google has rolled out a series of substantial updates that promise to position the platform as a formidable contender in the messaging arena. Recent enhancements include the integration of Ultra HDR support in RCS chats, introducing a visual feast with features like photomoji and animated stickers.

However, the tech giant’s innovation doesn’t stop there. Reports suggest that Google is actively developing a message editing feature, akin to the functionality found in WhatsApp. Unearthed by The SPAndroid, the beta version of the Google Messages app, released in the final week of November, subtly reveals this upcoming capability.

Diving into the details, four intriguing flags—bugle.enable_edit_ui, bugle.load_edit_history, bugle.process_outgoing_edits, and bugle.process_incoming_edits—hint at the imminent arrival of a text editing feature. The diligent folks at The SPAndroid, through an APK teardown, unveil Google’s creation of a new table in the messages database. This table, seemingly dedicated to storing edited messages, intricately captures crucial information such as message ID, the latest message ID, original RCS message ID, edited and received timestamps, offering users a comprehensive editing experience.

Although the message editing feature remains concealed from the public eye and unconfirmed by Google, it is anticipated to become a handy tool for rectifying typos or tweaking messages post-transmission. With Google consistently bolstering the Messages app, from Ultra HDR support to potential editing prowess, users can expect an evolving and dynamic messaging experience that continues to push boundaries. As the journey unfolds, these updates are poised to transform how we communicate, one innovation at a time.
