I use Telegram both on my desktop and my mobile phone. On the desktop, I can edit messages I've sent, but on the mobile Telegram client I can't find this option anywhere. Does it really not exist or am I missing something. Or - should I look for an unofficial client for this feature?


  • If I tap a message in a Telegram conversation view, the 'Message' context menu only has "Reply|Copy|Forward|Delete" - and no "Edit".
  • My client version is 4.9.1 (1361) arm-v7a
  • this feature is universal to all latest official versions of telegram. make sure that you are using the latest version. – tashakori Nov 10 '18 at 22:04
  • @tashakori: Well, I think I am. Would you mind adding an answer with a screenshot of where in the UI I can access the edit functionality? – einpoklum - reinstate Monica Nov 10 '18 at 22:21

A simple tap on a message you sent recently will bring up the action menu containing "Edit".


  • My 'Message' menu doesn't have Edit! - it has: Reply, Copy, Forward, Delete - and that's it. – einpoklum - reinstate Monica Nov 11 '18 at 9:07

    Maybe emphasis on "sent recently"? Clicking one of the older messages will not show Edit here either. My TG client is not the latest but I believe TG didn't make any feature regression. – Andy Yan Nov 11 '18 at 9:47
