According to a blog post by the instant messaging platform, the feature is rolling out globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

Users will be able to modify messages within fifteen minutes of sending a message.

Meta-owned platform earlier launched the functionality to lock chats within the app on Android and iOS.
