The "unsend" feature allocates the sender a fair amount of time to reconsider their sent message and provides the ability to retract the message for both the sender and receiver.

Facebook is finally following suit and adding the feature to its Messenger app.

According to reports, the feature can only be used within 10 minutes of sending the message. It doesn't actually send the email until it passes that buffer time. WhatsApp gives users a full hour to take back a text, and Instagram gives its users an unlimited window to delete direct messages.
