In addition to this, the company is also experimenting to improve the status badge. In the update, WhatsApp added a delete and a forward icon next to the status badge that will allow users to completely remove or forward their statuses.

However, in their report, WABetaInfo did mention that based on the recent WhatsApp beta update found on the iOS, WhatsApp might not allow users to edit very old messages. “You'll be able to edit only recent messages (about some days probably),” WABetaInfo said on its twitter handle.

The features have not been rolled out officially on the WhatsApp messaging app yet. However, they are speculated to be made available early next year.
