Creative  Feature Facebook Messenger Icon auf einem auf einem iPhone Facebook Messenger

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

You can finally take back your ill-conceived messages on Facebook. But we do know the feature has been in the works since back in April, having been first spotted in testing last month. As Facebook writes, the feature may be useful "If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information, or message the wrong thread". Facebook's unsend for both its messaging apps will actually deliver the message when you hit send.

Yet users will need to be quick as Facebook are giving those wanting to retrieve their messages just 10 minutes to do so.

When the 191.0 version of Messenger is released, another option will appear for 10 minutes above "Delete Message" when editing messages in a conversation: "Unsend Message".
