Facebook will give you 10 minutes to unsend that embarrassing message

If you're too drunk to realize you're sending messages to someone late at night, you're probably too drunk to remember you have 10 minutes to delete them.

According to BusinessInsider, the new feature was spotted in the release notes for the newest Messenger update, but for now it's still listed as "coming soon".

So don't forget to double-check your messages-and keep your thumb as far away from the "send" button as possible-before sending something you might regret.

Earlier this year, reported that the company was deleting old Facebook messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg from its recipients inboxes.


Yet users will need to be quick as Facebook are giving those wanting to retrieve their messages just 10 minutes to do so.

Compared to Facebook other messaging application, you'll actually have significantly less time to delete a sent message in Facebook's flagship Messenger app. WhatsApp users are now afforded just over one hour to remove a message from both users' inbox. Maybe you sent a picture to someone you didn't want to.

Now, The Verge reports that people who use Facebook Messenger will have the option to take back the messages they wish they never sent-as long as they act quickly enough.
