Facebook rolls out 'unsend' feature on Messenger
San Francisco, Feb 6 : Social networking giant Facebook has released the "unsend" feature on its messaging app Messenger that would allow users to delete messages from the chat-thread within 10 minutes of sending it.
Just like the "unsend" feature on WhatsApp, the function would give users two choices -- "remove for everyone" and "remove for you" -- on Messenger as well.
The "remove for everyone" choice would replace the deleted message notifying others on the chat that the message has been removed.
Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram already supports the "unsend" capability and allows users to delete a sent message for all participants in the personal or group chat.
The prototype feature was first discovered in a prototype code in October 2018 -- six months after the social networking giant announced it was in favour of building the "unsend" functionality.
