Yesterday, users noticed a time constraint on when you're able to delete any unwanted or mistake texts, with ten minutes given until the message lives on forever.

"You´re not the only one!"

Facebook recognised that it was giving its top executive privacy options that weren't available to users and promised to add "a broader delete message feature" to the Messenger app.

Approximately 2.6 billion people use at least one of Facebook's messaging services - WhatsApp, Instagram, or Messenger - each month, and more than 2 billion people use it at least once a day.

Facebook has told The Verge that the new feature will be available today on the latest versions of Messenger for iOS and Android.

To use it, simply tap the reconsidered message and select "Remove for Everyone".

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

Along the bottom of the screen will be a new Remove option; select it. Facebook Messenger already provides a Secret Conversations function that has encrypted end to end, but few consumers know about it. But TechCrunch found that Zuckerberg had gone back as far as 2010 to unsend some of his own messages, including messages sent to non-Facebook employees.

Unfortunately, Facebook will also notify other members of a conversation when this action is taken, essentially calling you out to your conversation partners. You only have a 10 minute window to complete both actions.

As was first reported on Tuesday by The Verge, Facebook Messenger is introducing its official "unsend" feature.

While the news received mixed responses, Facebook said in a statement to the media that the discussions were just the beginning of a "long process". Choosing "Remove For Everyone" deletes that message from view for all participants in the particular chat.
