Unsend feature rolls out for Facebook Messenger

Facebook is letting users remove messages even if they've already been seen by other users, but obviously you won't be able to remove that embarrassing photo from their mind.

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. You'll get the normal reaction emoji just above message, as well as some options down below: Copy, Remove, and Forward.

Facebook now allows users to remove missent messages on its chat app Messenger.

You will have ten minutes to delete a message after it is sent so act fast! The removed message will be replaced by a text mentioning that the message was removed.

The technology news site TechCrunch reported last April that multiple people who'd received messages from CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed that the messages had been deleted while their own remained.

On Friday, both Trav and Kylie lit up their Instagram pages with rare Stormi Webster moments. Unfortunately, Jenner revealed that the party had to be canceled due to the rain.

A placeholder message will let the recipients of the original message know you removed a message in place of where the message originally appeared. From there, you'll be presented with two options: "Remove For Everyone" or "Remove For You".

Facebook first rolled out the capacity to manage Messenger, Facebook and Instagram interactions in the Page Manager app back in 2016, with a unified notifications stream across the three apps. The practices introduced by social media networks such as the News Feed have combined communities and made a better impact on society.

Those updated goals include making progress on the social issues Facebook is facing, building services that improve people's lives, supporting businesses and being more transparent about the role Facebook plays in the world. Florencia Herra-Vega, the CTO of encrypted messaging app Peerio, told Business Insider via message.

Facebook Messenger is one of the most used messaging platforms out there, and it's finally adding the ability to unsend a message.
