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

The unsend option will allow Messenger users to delete sent messages from their own inbox as well as their recipient's inbox. WhatsApp gives users a full hour to take back a text, and Instagram gives its users an unlimited window to delete direct messages.

The idea has been lobbied by Facebook since April after it was revealed the company had retracted messages sent by CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other company chief, TechRadar reported. The note states that users will be able to remove a message within 10 minutes of sending it "if you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread".

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.

Marseille building collapse: Fourth body found in ruins
One of them had been condemned and, with its windows boarded up, was well-secured and in theory unoccupied, officials said . Google Maps images taken in recent months showed the two collapsed buildings had large visible cracks in their facades.

Now Facebook is planning to save Messenger users from some of this pain.

You'll have to notice the mistake pretty quickly if you want it erased from the digital world; but nevertheless, it's possible now.

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. The confirmation of the new functionality comes directly from Facebook in the form of a note at the bottom of the changelog of the latest Messenger for iOS app update.
