Facebook says users will now be able to unsend messages sent via Messenger within 10 minutes of sending.

The Verge reports that from today, those who have the latest versions of Messenger for iOS and Android, users will be able to delete messages that were never intended to be sent.

You just tap the message you want to delete and you can either “Remove for Everyone” or “Remove for You”. remove for Everyone replaces the message with text that says you have deleted the message.

Facebook users demanded the feature when it was discovered that CEO Mark Zuckerberg was able to delete a message after sending it out.

Good news!

  • Just tired this to see if I could.
    Would be good if it was quicker than 10minutes….


  • I have definitely needed this more than once


  • Good idea. I would love to be able to delete rude messages that I receive. Can I do that too?


  • I wouldn’t need that often … but very handy sometimes!


  • Don’t send enough to worry about.


  • Thought that this was already possible even with old messages ?


  • That would. Be amazing


  • Great news except that by 10 minutes the other person has probably already read it…oops.


  • But what if the other person has already read it?


  • I’ve deleted my Messenger posts and re-sent, but I guess this is better because there’s no chance of the receiver reading a message you want to change or remove all together.
