Now the platform's more than 1 billion users can retract hastily sent messages, including typos or embarrassing content.

Make sure you've updated the app on your iPhone or Android smartphone to get hold of the feature.

This chart shows Facebook's user growth since 2004. A mere visual change. This will only hide the selected messages from your view, and not for others in the group. Which was very annoying, and also not very clear to the user.

Well, once you've felt the unmistakable sinking feeling of immediate regret, you have 10 minutes to delete your message. The removed message will be replaced by an alert telling everyone in the chat that it's been deleted.

Deleting a message is relatively straightforward.

Tapping the Remove option will then offer two options: "Remove for Everyone" and "Remove for You".

Why so late to the game?

What happened: Facebook has just released a feature that will allow users to delete Facebook Messenger texts after they've already been sent, according to The Verge. The company told TechCrunch the messages were removed as the result of a previously undisclosed message retention policy it implemented in 2014 after the Sony hacks.

Rumours have been circulating about this incredible feature for months, but the unsend feature is finally available in an update released today.

"But as people use these networks to shape society, it's critical we continue making progress on these questions". In fact, Messenger doesn't end to end encrypt messages by default like WhatsApp, Signal and iMessage do - that's reserved for the annoyingly hidden "secret message" feature. On Messenger's web app, you can remove messages by hovering over the button with three dots alongside your chat bubbles, and clicking on the "Remove" button to clear them.
