WhatsApp is expected to add new features to its iPhone app, that will allow the user to edit and revoke sent messages. This upcoming feature is rumoured to be disabled by default for WhatsApp for iPhone beta app users however it is expected to be available soon. An additional expected feature is a capability to preview shared archive files which include ZIP and RAR files.

At present the app lets the users delete messages on the device level and removes messages remain visible to the recipient. The upcoming feature of editing and revoking sent message will work by pressing long on the sent message. Unfortunately, there is no information when the new feature will be available for the Android beta users.
