Facebook Messenger Is Getting An 'Unsend Message' Feature

FB messenger

Wouldn't it be nice if we could turn back "the arrows of time", and "unsend" those drunken, unhinged or otherwise undesired text messages we fired out in the heat of the moment?

Mark Zuckerberg was caught out earlier this when it was found he, and other high-level Facebook execs, had the ability to erase messages they had sent to other people's inboxes. You'll only have 10 minutes to redact that silly photo or drunken confession you just sent to the wrong person.

Soon you'll be able to delete your Facebook Messenger messages. That feature will be extended to the rest of the world according the list of "Coming Soon features".

There isn't an exact date the "unsend" feature will be rolled out.

Thousand Oaks shooting: 'Hero' policeman Sergeant Ron Helus among 12 killed
Long was armed with a Glock 21, a.45-caliber created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber, according to the sheriff. The last words Jason Coffman told his son, Cody Coffman, were "I love you", before he went to Borderline Bar and Grill.

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

Facebook will soon roll out a feature on its Messenger service users have always been calling for. This gives the recipient the opportunity to read the messages, even if you decide to take it back within the timeframe its eligible to be "unsent". Both apps are owned by Facebook.

At the time of the discovery, when editing messages already sent in a conversation, the "Unsend Message" option will appear.
