Facebook Messenger will let iPhone users unsend messages

"Remove a message from a chat thread after it's been sent".

The option to unsend messages on Facebook Messenger is coming soon, the social network giant recently confirmed.

Judge Nap: Whitaker Not 'Legally Qualified' to Be Acting Attorney General

Facebook began floating the idea of allowing sent messages to be deleted in April after the company was caught red-handed retracting messages sent by CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other execs.

The long-awaited Unsend feature will hit Facebook Messenger soon. Maybe you sent a picture to someone you didn't want to.

The feature was first discovered and tweeted about by an engineer named Jane Manchun Wong in October while it was being tested. Gmail actually holds the email in a que for the time interval chosen. It's unclear at this time whether the feature will work both on mobile and on desktop, but it would make sense for Facebook to offer the same messaging experience across platforms. If your recipient is looking at their phone when you message them, or if they open the app before you can undo your action, there's not much you can do to take back your words.
