Facebook ''unsend' feature to enable you to delete messages within 10 minutes

Delete that drunk Facebook text to your ex if you catch it in time

Facebook Messenger will soon roll out an unsend feature, which will give users a grand total of ten minutes to unsend a message, wiping it from your chat history. The note states that users will be able to remove a message within 10 minutes of sending it "if you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread".

The note mentions the option to remove a message from a chat thread after being sent.

Who hasn't sent a message and immediately wished they could take it back?

The feature first came into light when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was found to be deleting messages he sent out.

I know what it meant to Sir Bobby Charlton when he came to St George's and we named the pitch after him a few months ago. Southgate revealed talks over Rooney's involvement have been going on for a year, ever since his global retirement.

The "unsend" feature allocates the sender a fair amount of time to reconsider their sent message and provides the ability to retract the message for both the sender and receiver. We'll be interested to see how users react to the tiny 10-minute window of remorse.

The much-anticipated "unsend" feature appears to be imminent for Facebook Messenger users.

Conflicting message aside, it would seem like a pretty tight window, compared to the implementation by other apps. Gmail actually holds the email in a que for the time interval chosen. We reported back in October about the functionality, pointing out the benefits and disadvantages of the Unsend messages option.
