You can soon 'unsend' messages on Facebook Messenger

Made a mistake? No problem, you've got a few seconds to undo it and make sure to fix any mistakes before you finally fire it off. At least, that's how its worked for users whose name isn't Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook apologized and that they would be rolling out an unsend feature to everyone in the coming months.

Facebook is planning to roll out a new update to Messenger that will allow users to delete sent messages from chat threads within 10 minutes of sending.

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. This time limit does seem surprisingly short, however, considering that the company gives WhatsApp users up to an hour to unsend that embarrassing photo.

Have you ever sent a message and immediately regretted it?

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. When the 191.0 version of Messenger is released, another option will appear for 10 minutes above "Delete Message" when editing messages in a conversation: "Unsend Message".
