After some backlash, Facebook said the "unsend" feature would launch soon for all.
"We have previously confirmed that we intend to ship a feature like this and are still planning to do so", TechCrunch quoted a Facebook spokesperson as saying on Friday. Deleting messages is still a possibility but the problem is you can remove it for yourself or both parties, but it still leaves a tracker that something was deleted. It might be fair to let the timer be activated as long as the message hasn't been read. One of the biggest questions surrounding this is sure to revolve around the amount of time users will have before being able to retract a message, and now, that seems to be a complete unknown.
If a user selects the Unsend button option, he/she will be able to delete the message from the chat on behalf of all its users.
The Facebook unsend feature came into the picture when the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg was able to delete the message from the inbox of the various recipients in the month of April this year.

Back then, LeBron James was a member of the Miami Heat , employed under Pat Riley . "But I do admit to telling Danny Ainge to". The Thunder played against the Timberwolves without Butler last week, as the All-Star has requested a trade in preseason.
Regardless of the minor details, an unsend feature is likely to be welcomed by most Messenger users. One should note, though, that the feature will only allow users to exercise the option within a limited time period.
WhatsApp, for example, has an unsend feature that launched previous year. This feature is nothing new in the messaging/chatting Apps. The option is still not available to everyone, in fact only a handful of users have experienced this feature as of now. Evidence has been found that an "unsend" option is in the works.
Besides, Instagram, the popular photo-sharing platform has also started testing a new feature.
