Facebook Messenger will soon roll out an unsend feature, which will give users a grand total of ten minutes to unsend a message, wiping it from your chat history.

Other messaging services, including Facebook's own WhatsApp, have the same option, though it gives users an hour to delete any embarrassing/drunken/threatening communications.

As noted by The Verge, the release notes for version 191.0 of Messenger's iOS client list the unsend feature as "coming soon".

Now Facebook is planning to save Messenger users from some of this pain. Maybe you sent a picture to someone you didn't want to.

You'll have to notice the mistake pretty quickly if you want it erased from the digital world; but nevertheless, it's possible now.

But we do know the feature has been in the works since back in April, having been first spotted in testing last month.
