Have you ever sent a text message and immediately realized that you made a mistake? Or maybe you want to add something to the message that you just sent? Well, the good news is that if you are using an Android device, you can edit a text message that you have already sent. In this article, we will show you how to do it.
Editing a Text Message on Android
Editing a text message on Android is quite easy. However, it is important to note that this feature is only available on Android devices running on Android 7.0 (Nougat) or later. If your device is running on an older version of Android, you will not be able to edit text messages that you have already sent.
Step 1: Open the Messaging App
The first step is to open the messaging app that you used to send the text message that you want to edit. This could be the default messaging app that came with your device or a third-party messaging app that you have downloaded from the Google Play Store.
Step 2: Find the Text Message You Want to Edit
Once you have opened the messaging app, find the conversation that contains the text message that you want to edit. Tap on the conversation to open it.
Step 3: Tap and Hold on the Text Message
Now, tap and hold on the text message that you want to edit. After a few seconds, a menu will appear. From this menu, select the “Edit” option. If you do not see the “Edit” option, it means that your device does not support this feature.
Step 4: Edit the Text Message
After selecting the “Edit” option, you will be taken to the message editor where you can make the necessary changes to the text message. Once you have made the changes, tap on the “Save” button to save the edited message.
Step 5: Send the Edited Text Message
Finally, send the edited text message by tapping on the send button. The edited version of the text message will be sent to the recipient.
