Facebook Messenger's new Unsend messages option gets confirmed

Facebook Messenger is the latest app to allow its users to change their minds about messages after they've sent out into the world.

It should be noted that this ten-minute window to delete a sent message for both yourself and the recipient is a lot shorter than the one-hour period offered by the Facebook-owned WhatsApp. At least, that's how its worked for users whose name isn't Mark Zuckerberg.

"Remove a message from a chat thread after it's been sent".

Facebook didn't announce the feature yet, but The Verge spotted it in the "coming soon" section of the release notes from Messenger for iPhone version 191.0.

Whether it's reaching out to an ex in a moment of weakness or making a poor emoji choice, many of us have hit "send" on a message only to regret it seconds later.

Facebook Messenger is going to add the Unsend feature in an upcoming update. It doesn't actually send the email until it passes that buffer time.

So far, Facebook has not mentioned when the new "unsend" feature would be available.

You'll have to notice the mistake pretty quickly if you want it erased from the digital world; but nevertheless, it's possible now. We reported back in October about the functionality, pointing out the benefits and disadvantages of the Unsend messages option.
