Facebook Messenger Tests Unsend Feature

Facebook Messenger may be getting an Unsend feature soon

I'm not on Facebook, but if I were, Inebriated Friday Night Me would nearly certainly appreciate the ability to unsend plastered messages.

A week before, TechCrunch asked Facebook about the progress on Unsend Feature of the six-month target, and the giant Social Network Facebook told us "Though we have nothing to declare today, we have previously confirmed that we mean to ship a feature like this and are still planning to implement this feature". In that case, there is still record that you did send a message and that you deleted it. The company had been caught deleting some of Mark Zuckerberg's messages from recipients inboxes, though the same ability isn't available to consumers. The technological medium had access to screenshots showing that Facebook Messenger has begun to run the first tests of the feature, shared by Jane Manchung Wong. "After that time limit, the message will no longer be unsendable", she tweeted. You will get the options to delete it or unsend it.

So far, when a user deletes a message sent via Facebook Messenger, it is only deleted from his inbox so that the recipient can still see the content. This Unsend feature, on the other hand, will remove the message from both parties of a conversation. One should need to keep in mind, that this feature will only allow the users to exercise the option within a limited time period.


WhatsApp, for example, has an unsend feature that launched previous year.

Besides, Instagram, the popular photo-sharing platform has also started testing a new feature. Evidence has been found that an "unsend" option is in the works.

There's no word on when exactly will Facebook roll-out this feature to all the users, so until then, stay alert and think twice when sending a message to someone on Facebook Messenger.
