Google Messages is now testing a new feature that allows users to edit RCS (Rich Communication Services) messages, bringing it in line with other modern messaging services. Some Android users have already spotted this capability in the Messages app.

With the new feature, users can long-press on a message to reveal an "Edit" pencil button alongside options like copy, delete, and star. Tapping on "Edit" allows users to modify the RCS chat directly in the text field. Google prompts users with a message indicating that they are about to "Edit message," and provides the option to cancel.

According to reports from @Jhowkira2000 on X/Twitter, users have a 15-minute window after sending a message to make edits, similar to messaging platforms like WhatsApp and iMessage.

This feature seems to be available only when both parties in the conversation have access to it. While it has gone live for some beta users over the past week, it appears to be in a limited testing phase and may not be available on all devices yet.
