Facebook Messenger Will Release the New Feature We’ve All Been Waiting for

09 November 2018

Facebook is about to bring similar unsend functionality to its Messenger application, now that its WhatsApp mobile chat app has it.

"If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread, you can easily correct it by removing the message", reads an excerpt from the release notes of Facebook's latest 191.0 software update for iOS.

Facebook Messenger will soon roll out an unsend feature, which will give users a grand total of ten minutes to unsend a message, wiping it from your chat history.

Well don't worry, because Mark Zuckerberg has come to the rescue. So don't forget to double-check your messages-and keep your thumb as far away from the "send" button as possible-before sending something you might regret.

Earlier last month, it was reported that Facebook was working on a feature that allows you to unsend Messenger messages. It doesn't actually send the email until it passes that buffer time. In my experience, you know pretty quickly whether you've sent a message to the wrong person (or the wrong message to the right person) most of the time.

Other messaging services, including Facebook's own WhatsApp, have the same option, though it gives users an hour to delete any embarrassing/drunken/threatening communications.
