According to the WABetaInfo website, in order to edit a message sent in the beta version of the app, the user has to tap and hold the message. From there, the smartphone will display a menu, which includes the option to edit the message.

In addition, the website highlights that despite being discovered in the beta version of WhatsApp for Android, this feature should also be available on iOS and web versions. There is currently no information on when support for editing messages will be available to all users.
