Facebook Messenger Now Lets You Un-Send Messages, Using 'Remove for Everyone'

Not only it gobbled down other similar services such as Orkut but became to be the only service people trusted to use

Following the report, Facebook said it would publicly launch the feature to let users remove their messages from their chat history. Choosing "Remove For Everyone" deletes that message from view for all participants in the particular chat.

Participants in a group conversation receive a message saying "This message was deleted" to alert them of the change.

For up to 10 minutes after a message is sent, users will soon have the option to delete that message from the conversation.

So, while you can't go back in time and delete years-old messages that keep you up at night, this does serve as a layer of defense against messages that are sent to the wrong contact.

It's all laid out right here in Facebook's recent post about the Messenger feature update. Still, if you say something and immediately regret it, you'll be able to unsend it starting today. This replaces the Copy, Forward, Delete options that have historically been present here. But it's pretty much useless if you drunk message your ex one night and then wake up the next morning realizing you made a awful mistake.

Fellow messaging service WhatsApp - which is also owned by Facebook - also has an "unsend" tool.

Facebook Messenger is finally rolling out the unsend button it promised almost a year ago.

The company admitted it began erasing the messages of Mr Zuckerberg and a few other top executives in 2014 after computer hackers obtained and released emails from Sony Pictures executives. "We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages".

The feature turns off for messages after 10 minutes, and there is still the chance the recipient has already seen it. Sound off down in the comments section with your thoughts.
