Facebook Messenger gives users option to delete sent messages

Zuckerberg Praises Facebook At 15, Omits Numerous Controversies 02/05/2019

For up to 10 minutes after a message is sent, users will soon have the option to delete that message from the conversation. On Messenger's web app, you can remove messages by hovering over the button with three dots alongside your chat bubbles, and clicking on the "Remove" button to clear them. You can do this operation only within 10 minutes of sending the message. Wondering how the feature works?

Following this report, Facebook announced a year ago that it would publicly launch the feature for its users, though did not specify a launch date. "Starting today, we are launching a feature where you can easily remove your message on Messenger". But it is somewhat less powerful than the all-encompassing ability granted to Mark Zuckerberg, to delete any message he had ever sent and erase any evidence that it had even existed.

Along the bottom of the screen will be a new Remove option; select it. "I'm simply pointing out what you can see based on all the really good journalism that's out there and what you can see from using the product".

While this feature isn't quite as expansive as Zuckerberg's expiring messages, countless users will appreciate the fact that they can finally unsend a message that they accidentally sent to the wrong person or group. Other people in the conversation will be alerted that a message was removed, Facebook said. It not only disappears from your messages but also from the recipient.

You've likely sent a Facebook message or two and then wished, nearly immediately, that you hadn't. And also, that the "beta" feature will not be used by Zuckerberg or any other Facebook executive till then. In it, the social media giant notes you can now remove any message that you've previously typed from a text. Well, fortunately it's really easy - considering you don't have long to get that messaged wiped.
