Unsend feature rolls out for Facebook Messenger

Unsend feature rolls out for Facebook Messenger

However, as popular as Facebook Messenger is, it's never offered the ability to delete or "unsend" a message.

If you choose the "Remove for You" option, the message will only be deleted in your chat history.

The feature is available within a 10-minute window from the time the message was sent.

Once you do this, the other person (or people) in the chat will be sent a text letting them know that a message was removed.

Social media giant Facebook is reportedly building a unified messaging for business feature that will allow companies to access and manage Instagram Direct messages alongside Facebook Messenger messages.

Facebook is launching an "unsend" feature in Messenger more than 10 months after it promised to do so after it was discovered surreptitiously removing messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg from their recipients' inboxes.

Now the platform's more than 1 billion users can retract hastily sent messages, including typos or embarrassing content.

Speaking to The Verge, Facebook said the new feature was based on Zuckerberg's one but it underwent "some improvements to provide broader functionality to people using Messenger".

Users can delete the message just on their end or "for everyone". The deleted message will leave a note that a message was deleted, the same way it does in WhatsApp.

Today is the day this feature finally appears with the addition of a new "Remove for everyone" option.

After selecting 'Remove for Everyone, ' users will get a warning that says: 'You'll permanently remove this message for all chat members. Click on it, and you'll delete the message in question.

Unfortunately, Facebook will also notify other members of a conversation when this action is taken, essentially calling you out to your conversation partners.
