Regret sending that Facebook message? Now you can delete it

Regret sending that Facebook message? Now you can delete it

Until now, these mistakes can not be undone easily as the messages once sent can not be deleted.

The move comes after TechCrunch reported that founder Mark Zuckerberg had retracted Facebook messages from recipients - revealing that the feature existed, but was not available to all users.

The feature has been rolled out in the United States for iOS and Android, but when Junkee attempted to update their iOS Messenger this morning, no update was yet available.

There are a few caveats though - you can only remove a message within 10 minutes of sending it and everyone else in the conversation will see a placeholder notice saying you removed a message. Instead, we're limited by a timer of 10 minutes that starts ticking down the moment the offending message is originally sent. The removed message will be replaced by a text mentioning that the message was removed.

Tapping the Remove option will then offer two options: "Remove for Everyone" and "Remove for You".

- Open the Facebook Messenger app on your phone or desktop.

In the long-awaited answer to many Messenger users" prayers, Facebook announced today that it is launching an "unsend' feature.

Doing the former will only remove it from your view, while selecting the latter will delete the message from the chat entirely.

Here's how to delete messages on Facebook Messenger. Still, if you say something and immediately regret it, you'll be able to unsend it starting today.

The three services will still work as standalone apps, but will be merged so that chats and messages can pass between them.

15 years ago, on February 4, 2004, 19-year old Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg, along with some of his classmates, launched a little website called Thefacebook.
