Edit A Message: Another Viber Hack Just For You

If you are a perfectionist like we are, you will know how that one teeny tiny typo in a text message you’ve just sent can totally ruin your day. You could delete the whole message, but that does seem a bit extreme for that one word.

Ordinarily you would let it go, this is text after all, mistakes are pretty normal when your fingers are flying across the keypad, and auto-correct does its thing. But not this time…

Introducing Viber’s latest feature – Edit Messages. Now you can edit the message, and keep on chatting.

How? Simply long tap on the message, choose “Edit”, and your original text will appear in the input area waiting for you to edit. Tap send and there you go, you’ve fixed it.

Embarrassment averted 😉

Even better, when you edit a message, it will slot back into its original place in the chat, so that your conversation continues smoothly, as though the interruption never happened.

Your recipients will only be able to see that something has changed by the new “Edited” label on the bottom of the message, and the new timestamp which will show the time you edited the message, rather than when you wrote it the first time.

Of course, if the whole message still looks wrong, you can still choose to delete the message for everyone in the chat at any time, and start all over again.

Get this super-handy new feature on Android when you update to the latest version of the app today. Coming soon on iPhone.
