Facebook Messenger's new Unsend messages option gets confirmed

Sandy Mccarthy | 08 November, 2018, 19:02

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

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.

Back in April, with Facebook still reeling from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the company came under fire after it was discovered to be unsending messages sent from company executives, including Mark Zuckerberg, to other users.

Twitter user Matt Navarra shared what he found when he spotted this feature - and its time limit - being listed as "coming soon". Facebook is about to bring similar unsend functionality to its Messenger application, now that its WhatsApp mobile chat app has it.

Amazon Black Friday UK starts the 16th of November
Deals available in this year's Black Friday Sale at Amazon.co.uk will be announced closer to the launch date. There may also be some special offers on Amazon's own services and products too.

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

Google's for Gmail allows users to choose how long they have to unsend an email.

Have you ever sent a message and immediately regretted it?

Facebook will soon roll out a feature on its Messenger service users have always been calling for. The confirmation of the new functionality comes directly from Facebook in the form of a note at the bottom of the changelog of the latest Messenger for iOS app update.
