Do you regret after sending a message to a person on Facebook messenger? Well now, no more regrets as Facebook has introduced a new feature that gives you the power to unsend a wrongly sent message. Here's how.

 

Facebook Messenger has started rolling out the ‘unsend feature’ for its users which was rumoured for quite some time. Last year, Facebook users found out that Mark Zuckerberg had the power to delete messages on the app which led them to ask Facebook to introduce the feature for all users as well. And that’s how a few months back, Facebook announced that it was working an unsend feature for all the users. Well, Facebook kept its promise to launch the most-awaited feature, now we can't wait to try it. 
 
"Have you ever accidentally sent a message to the wrong group of friends, mistyped something, or simply wanted to remove a message in a chat? You’re not the only one! Starting today, we are launching a feature where you can easily remove your message on Messenger,” Facebook described the new unsend feature.  
 
The unsend option has been rolled out for both for iOS and Android users. It is now available on the latest versions of Facebook Messenger. To use the feature, you can update the app from Google Play store or App store.
 
How to use Facebook Messenger's unsend feature
 
The feature is precisely similar to WhatsApp’s unsend option, but on Facebook Messenger, users will get a stipulated period of 10 minutes to decide whether or not they would like to unsend a message sent to a person on the app. 
 
If you wish to unsend a sent message, then you may long press on it in the messenger app. Two options- ‘Remove for everyone and ‘Remove for you’ will pop-up on the screen, then select an option of your choice to undo the message you had sent earlier. The 'Remove for everyone' option will delete the message for all the people involved in the conversation while the 'Remove for you' will let you delete the message just for yourself.
