Facebook lets people slide out of DMs with new delete option

The feature will be available to all Facebook Messenger users on the latest version of the app on iOS and Android as of today (Tuesday). We get into a heated argument and send a Facebook message we regret.

To use the feature, tap and hold on a message you sent, then select "Remove.' From there, users will have the option to 'Remove for You" or 'Remove for Everyone'.

Users will have two options: "Remove for You" and "Remove for Everyone".

Facebook has finally promised the feature that internet users have been pining for - the ability to delete a regretful message from their chat history. "The removed message will be replaced by text alerting everyone in the conversation the message was removed". This can help with typos, for sure, but it will also come in handy when and if you send a message to the wrong recipient.

A Facebook representative told us that it's still rolling out on the app stores and to give it some time.

Last month, Facebook also made big changes to one of its other messaging platforms, WhatsApp. American news organisation New York Times, took it to the next level by roasting Facebook, poking fun on the multi-million social media giant and its partly decorated and mostly criticised founder, Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook cited the resultant increased security in Zuck's obtaining the Messenger unsend feature early.
