The edit and recall/revoke message has reportedly appeared on the newest beta version of WhatsApp for Android, however. It is disabled by default. A rooted phone is needed to enable these features manually.

It should be kept in mind that while the sources of the news are reliable enough, there is no word yet from WhatsApp Inc about when it will be available for general users.

The company has been adding new features to the app, recently, after announcing that WhatsApp will no longer work on old devices, the company has redesigned the app’s storage usage screen and added the ability to queue messages on iPhone version of the app.
