Facebook Messenger Launches an ‘Unsend’ Feature

The feature is similar to one available to founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, which was first discovered a year ago after several users reported messages they have received from the firm's boss had since disappeared.

You can't delete messages in this way in many chat services, so it's good to see that you can finally do it on Facebook Messenger. Instead, we're limited by a timer of 10 minutes that starts ticking down the moment the offending message is originally sent. You'll notice a new option that says "Remove for Everyone". It's a pretty straightforward process: Just tap on the message you've sent within 10 minutes and you'll have the option to pull the message back. In it, the social media giant notes you can now remove any message that you've previously typed from a text.

In the long-awaited answer to many Messenger users" prayers, Facebook announced today that it is launching an "unsend' feature. Perhaps you're a perfectionist who cringes every time you send a message with a typo? The latter option will function in the same way the current Delete option works.

Australia Says Last Child Refugees to Leave Nauru Camp
Canberra bars the refugees from resettling in Australia and instead tries to send them to third countries like the US. More than 1000 asylum seekers remain in the two centres and continue to face an uncertain fate.

In addition, a number of recent reports have warned that Facebook and wider social media face stricter legislation if they continue to fail to fully protect users, particularly young people, from disturbing content on their platforms. Facebook cited the resultant increased security in Zuck's obtaining the Messenger unsend feature early. Once "removed", the message will not reappear in the draft space.

Mark Zuckerberg regards the integration as a personal project and it will take place next year, it's claimed.

Other apps like WhatsApp, Signal and Discord already use end-to-end encrypted messaging.
