Facebook now lets you unsend unthoughtful messages on Messenger

California: Facebook Messenger has embraced human flaw. The platform, which seeks to become the default messaging service for the global population, has realised that it is hard to keep track of the thoughts while typing, which leads to erroneous messages and hence, an unsend button should be included to save the day.

Starting this week, Facebook Messenger users will finally have the unsend feature reflecting in their apps. The feature had been promised nearly a year ago.

Similar to how it works on WhatsApp, if you have erroneously typed out something, you will have a 10-minute window to unsend it. Simply tap on the message and then hit Remove, then Remove for everyone. A popup will ask you if you are sure, once you hit Remove, the nasty message will be gone.
