Facebook Messenger Unsend feature gives you 10 minutes to take it back

Messenger users will soon be able to delete their sent messages. Said something embarrassing? Don't worry, you can unsend that Facebook message, but you better be fast!

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

"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", the patch notes state.

He will serve our Country well ... "It's very sad", Trump said during a scathing interview with Hill.TV in September. Sessions said that he did not think he should lead the investigation since he had been a Trump campaign surrogate.

Earlier this year, reported that the company was deleting old Facebook messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg from its recipients inboxes.

This length of time is relatively short in comparison to other messaging platforms, including the one day time limit for Facebook-owned Instagram and one hour for Whatsapp - also owned by the social media giant. Facebook is about to bring similar unsend functionality to its Messenger application, now that its WhatsApp mobile chat app has it. Even Gmail gives users a few seconds to "undo send".

Bottom line: Great news for people who take their phones with them on nights out: Facebook Messenger's long-talked-about unsend feature is nearly here. Facebook's unsend for both its messaging apps will actually deliver the message when you hit send. So don't forget to double-check your messages-and keep your thumb as far away from the "send" button as possible-before sending something you might regret.
