According to WhatsApp tracker, WABetaInfo, the feature is currently in development. Screenshots from the the website show an edit option for a sent message in WhatsApp for Android.

It is not clear when or with which version WhatsApp will roll out the feature. WABetaInfo said that it is also not clear whether a time limit will be applied to edit the messages, or if users can do it forever.
