Whatsapp has been making a number of improvements to its service over the past few months.
In December, an update to the Facebook-owned app allowed users to recall a message before it has been read by the recipient. 
WhatsApp is reportedly adding the ability to edit and recall messages. The app appears to be trialling the new feature in a beta version, according to an image posted on Twitter by @WABetaInfo

In November, the app officially launched video calling to worldwide users on iOS, Android and the Windows Phone.
In keeping with WhatsApp’s data security standards, the new video calling feature is fully encrypted, protecting calls from being listened into. 

WhatsApp, acquired by Facebook in 2014, said it would share user data with its parent company to better fight spam and improve users’ experiences of both services .
The move was a subtle but significant shift for the messaging app, which has long promised to safeguard the privacy of more than one billion users around the world.
In September WhatsApp started ‘coordinating’ accounts with Facebook by sharing users’ mobile phone numbers.
The two share device information, such as the type of operating system and other smartphone characteristics.
Facebook uses the phone number internally to better identify WhatsApp users on Facebook.
This means it can recommend friends or show targeted advertising.
The ads come through a Facebook program called ‘Custom Audiences’
