You can soon 'unsend' messages on Facebook Messenger

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

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

Currently, while Facebook users can delete messages that they sent from their own inbox, the recipient of the message can still see them.

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.

Well don't worry, because Mark Zuckerberg has come to the rescue.

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.

Compared to Facebook other messaging application, you'll actually have significantly less time to delete a sent message in Facebook's flagship Messenger app. WhatsApp users are now afforded just over one hour to remove a message from both users' inbox.

Ten minutes seems like a reasonable time period. Maybe you sent a picture to someone you didn't want to. It's unclear at this time whether the feature will work both on mobile and on desktop, but it would make sense for Facebook to offer the same messaging experience across platforms.

Have you ever wanted to take back a message you already sent?
