Facebook has announced that they’re introducing an ‘unsend’ feature, which will allow users to quickly delete a message they regret.

The new feature was revealed in update 192.0 for iOS on Wednesday.

“Coming soon: Remove a message from a chat thread after it’s been sent,” the update reads.

“If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information, or message the wrong thread, you can easily correct it by removing the message within 10 minutes of sending it.”

The feature is believed to be similar to that of Instagram direct message, which lets people tap and hold on the message they wish to remove, and then select Unsend.


Phew! That will be a big relief.

  • Sounds like a great idea when you make a mistake!


  • Probably more relevant for people who drunk text


  • This will be an interesting new feature I wonder if it will work well.


  • Great new feature for people who use Facebook


  • Good ! Might be good to think before we speak/message anyway


  • Very welcome update!!


  • I really need this function on my phone for unsending SMSs!


  • But does it mean that the message isn’t sent immediately anymore and it will be sent after ten minutes to give you the possibility to change it? Because that’s not nice either.


  • Good to know in case I need it.


  • All depends how quickly you regret sending the message. If the recipient has already read it, there’s no point.


  • Still need to be careful incase the recipient is faster than you.
