Facebook Messenger launching new long-awaited feature

Delete that drunk Facebook text to your ex if you catch it in time Delete that drunk Facebook text to your ex if you catch it

A new "Unsend" feature will be included in version 191.0 of the iOS Messenger app, according to the release notes for the update.

Facebook Messenger will soon introduce a feature that lets you delete a message up to 10 minutes after it's already been sent.

If you know the terror of waking up with a hangover before discovering who you messaged the night before, the best option would probably be to leave your handset at home-or at least get a cheap feature phone that won't get you into as much trouble. "If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread, you can easily correct it by removing the message within ten minutes of sending it".

Now Facebook is planning to save Messenger users from some of this pain.

Sri Lankan Parliament to reconvene on Nov 14: Sirisena
The Prime Minister was addressing the "Rata Rakina Jana Mahimaya" public protest rally at the Parliament Junction, Battaramulla. Sirisena has also accused Wickremesinghe's government of not taking seriously an alleged assassination plot against him.

In addition to saying it would no longer be deleting execs' messages, Facebook said the unsend feature would be rolling out to all users at a later date.

However, unlike it's billionaire founder Mark Zuckerberg's messages which were many years old at the time of deletion, Facebook is only extending us Facebook-using peons the ability to retract and remove messages within a 10 minute timeframe.

Facebook will soon roll out a feature on its Messenger service users have always been calling for. WhatsApp gives users a full hour to take back a text, and Instagram gives its users an unlimited window to delete direct messages. It doesn't actually send the email until it passes that buffer time.

Have you ever sent a message and immediately regretted it?
