Facebook Messenger is finally going to introduce a lifesaving 'unsend' feature

FB messenger

Now, it remains to be seen when exactly Facebook will make the option to unsend messages available to everyone because "coming soon" doesn't tells us too much about that. WhatsApp, a service now also owned by Facebook, gives users 68 minutes and 16 seconds to remove a mistakenly sent message.

You can finally take back your ill-conceived messages on Facebook.

Soon you'll be able to delete your Facebook Messenger messages.

Users may now delete messages on the Messenger app but it only reflects on the sender's end and remains on the recipient's thread.

The company lists the feature as "coming soon" in the changelog for version 191.0 of Messenger for iOS.

Chrome 71 to Block All Ads on Sites That Serve Abusive Experiences
Google defines abusive experience advertising as advertising that tricks users into taking an action that the user did not intend. It includes: pop-up banners, redirects to suspicious websites, open ads in new window and other questionable marketing moves.

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

There isn't an exact date the "unsend" feature will be rolled out. When the feature goes live, it appears that you will only have a 10-minute window to do so.

Conflicting message aside, it would seem like a pretty tight window, compared to the implementation by other apps. It doesn't actually send the email until it passes that buffer time.

Right now you can delete messages but it only will delete the message on your end and not the recipient's end. We reported back in October about the functionality, pointing out the benefits and disadvantages of the Unsend messages option.
