New 'unsend' feature on Facebook Messenger

07 February 2019

"You´re not the only one!"

Whether Facebook was actually testing that feature or it was simply announced so Facebook could avoid the tricky conversation about why Zuckerberg's old messages were suddenly gone is unknown, but regardless, it's here for us know.

Early a year ago it was revealed that Facebook co-founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg was apparently able to remove his sent messages, which caused pressure to make the feature available to all.

Lionel Messi reacted with passion after equalising for Barcelona against Valencia
Lionel Messi scores twice as Barcelona come from two goals behind to draw 2-2 with Valencia in La Liga on Saturday night. In the 70th minute, Antonio Lato's knee collided with the Argentine star and he let the field for treatment.

Users can also remove messages just for yourself, you can do so anything by selecting "Remove for You".

Facebook is finally rolling out the ability to remove sent messages from Messenger worldwide.

In contrast, Facebook-owned WhatsApp gives you one hour to delete a message, while the app Telegram gives you 48 hours to remove a bad text.

U.S. forces staying in Iraq to watch Iran
Meanwhile, as renewed American sanctions on Iran begin to bite, Tehran will rely more heavily on Iraq for trade. And, he said if al Qaeda and other terrorist groups grew in strength, USA forces would return to the region.

Following the report, Facebook said it would publicly launch the feature to let users remove their messages from their chat history. Gizmodo attempted to test the feature on two updated iPhones, but it wasn't available for us yet. Users have to switch to "Secret Conversation" mode on Messenger to attain some measure of security, and Instagram doesn't have any "secure" messaging option. But ten minutes should at least be enough to save you from future embarrassment, if you're able to mash that delete button fast enough. It's similar to the process above, except you'll tap "Remove for You". Now the tool only allows businesses to receive and interact with messages from Facebook Messenger.

The feature is now available for those of you who aren't a CEO with potentially incriminating messages dating back years.

Of course, there's a catch: it's limited to a small, 10-minute window.

CBBC Newsround: People warned about crocodiles in Australia floods
Some, like Hermit Park resident Andrew Roberts, are asking why the water in the dam was allowed to reach such a high level. Helicopters have been supporting the army in the rescue effort today. "We'll be all right".

The Facebook co-founder and chief executive said he sees profound social changes "as networks of people connected via the internet replace traditional hierarchies and reshape institutions from government to business to media". But be warned, like WhatsApp, everyone in the chat will be alerted that the message was removed.
