Facebook Messenger is going to let us UNsend messages. The feature has been the buzz since April, but concrete proof it’s coming is in release notes for the latest iOS update. The catch is, the info says it’s “coming soon.”
At least we know how unsend will work. After sending the message, you’ll have 10 minutes to delete it. It will disappear from everywhere… unless someone screen shots it first. WhatsApp and Instagram already have the option.
The push for unsend started after it was discovered Facebook was deleting Mark Zuckerberg’s old messages over fears of hacking. The backlash was big and then came the announcement that the feature was coming to the platform.
