Facebook Messenger to get ‘Unsend” feature soon


Facebook has recently found itself in an ocean of hot water. The latest scandal with Cambridge Analytica and being discovered of storing call and text logs for Android Users of its messenger app, it was reported that Facebook was secretly deleting messenger messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg and other executives at the company.

Now, reports are that Facebook will roll out an “unsend” feature to messenger at same point this year.

It’s likely you will be given X amount of time to revoke a message that you send so it disappears from your and your recipients eyes.

Facebook already offers something similar with its Secret Message feature for encrypted chats, as this allows you to set to messages to automatically expire after a certain amount of time. “Facebook says it’s discussed this feature several times”, and that:

“We will now be making a broader delete messages feature available. This may take some time. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executive messages”.
