1. Edit sent messages
The function of editing messages after sending is widely used in Telegram and is long awaited by WhatsApp users. The feature makes it possible to correct perceived errors only after sending the message or simply to write in a more qualified way. In the Russian competitor, the content flagged with the word "edited" to let people know that the sentence has been modified.

3. Hide the "online" status of conversations
WhatsApp allows to disable the "last seen" of the conversations in the app, but some users also want the possibility to hide the "online" status. The main claim is linked to privacy, since anyone with your number can see if you are currently using the app. There is no provision for WhatsApp to provide an option to hide "online" from chats.

4. Warn when someone takes a print of the conversation
An eventual print warning in conversations, like what happens on Snapchat, could leave WhatsApp users divided. However, the resource awaited by a group of people who want to know when a contact captures the chat screen. There is no provision for the messenger to start displaying this information.
5. Delete messages at any time
WhatsApp lets you delete messages for everyone in up to an hour after sending. However, in Telegram, the resource can be used without a time limit, a possibility very desired by some users of the most used messenger in the world.

WhatsApp allows stickers to be sent in conversations, but users still want to be able to organize stickers by custom categories. The stickers would be separated by folders to allow them to be found more easily. Currently, it is possible to create a separate package in third-party applications, in addition to being able to favor the most used stickers.
