We’ve all been there. Whether its to an ex, someone you’re seeing, or someone you don’t like. We’ve all sent messages that we instantly regret or after a few minutes of thinking about, wish we could take it back. Well Facebook messenger is now going to allow you 10 minutes to unsend a message.
“If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or wrong message to the wrong thread, you can easily correct it by removing the message within 10 minutes of sending it” – official Facebook Statement.
you can easily [remove] the message within 10 minutes of sending it
So basically if you end up sending your nudes to the wrong person, and hopefully the recipient hasn’t seen it yet, you can take it back. Facebook already released this feature on their other messaging application, WhatsApp. However, you have 1 hour to unsound messages on it. Users currently have the option to delete their own inbox and have secret conversations for privacy, but this update will be more useful when sending something you didn’t want to.
Facebook are rumoured to also release a dark mode and re-skinned interface that cuts down on the glare from phones in the near future. A lot of phones have dark mode as an option on their phones which gives the screen a yellow tinge and is easier to look at. However this will give the option to users with phones that don’t have dark more. Now if only they could get to work on a drunk texting feature…we would all be very happy.
