Messenger now lets you edit messages.

Tap and hold on a message to access the edit menu. You have up to 15 minutes to edit a message. Pretty handy!

Meta announced the feature last week at the same time it shared details about encrypted chats being turned on by default in Messenger. I missed the edit news at the time, but Meta posted about the edit feature on Monday from its Messenger broadcast channel.
