Facebook Messenger Unsend Message Feature Will Come With 10-Minute Limit

Facebook have given no indication when this update will be rolled out, with the release notes simply saying: "Coming soon".

Messenger users will soon be able to delete their sent messages.

Currently, while Facebook users can delete messages that they sent from their own inbox, the recipient of the message can still see them.

Facebook is about to bring similar unsend functionality to its Messenger application, now that its WhatsApp mobile chat app has it.

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.

While the 10-minute window is rather unforgiving, the new feature will nonetheless be a welcome addition, although no specific time frame for the rollout has been announced.

Google's for Gmail allows users to choose how long they have to unsend an email. Facebook's unsend for both its messaging apps will actually deliver the message when you hit send.
