To err is human. Making a typo or rethinking a message after it's sent is all too common. Thankfully, Snapchat now offers the ability to edit a message after sending it, allowing users to swiftly correct any mistakes.

In January 2024, WhatsApp introduced a feature that allows its users to edit messages after sending them. Shortly thereafter, in March, Instagram, another social media platform owned by Meta, followed suit and rolled out its own edit message option. Now, in May, Snapchat has joined the trend, implementing a similar feature for its users.

Today, in this guide, we will explain the steps to edit a message on Snapchat after sending it, so you can correct any mistakes or adjust your message as needed. But, before that, you might be interested in knowing whether Snapchat has removed Shazam.

Once edited, your message will display an "(Edited)" label to indicate to the recipient that the original text has been changed. However, the recipient will not receive a notification when you edit the message.

You can edit your messages multiple times, but only within one minute after sending them. Additionally, it's important to note that the ability to edit messages is currently exclusive to Snapchat Plus subscribers.

So, if you want access to the editing feature, you'll need to subscribe to Snapchat Plus, which costs $4 per month or $30 annually. If you prefer not to spend money, there is a method to get Snapchat Plus for free.
