According to CNBC, the addition came after TechCrunch reported previous year that messages the publication received from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared to have been deleted, while their messages remained.

Facebook has started rolling out a new feature giving users the ability to delete sent messages from its Messenger service.

Well, once you've felt the unmistakable sinking feeling of immediate regret, you have 10 minutes to delete your message.

Users can also remove messages just for yourself, you can do so anything by selecting "Remove for You".

"If a user does receive a harmful message and the sender removes that message, the recipient can, for a limited time, still report the conversation to Facebook for investigation the same way they would with any Messenger conversation".

"Starting today, we are launching a feature where you can easily remove your message on Messenger - whether it's to one person or a group", it said.

The feature has been rolled out in the United States for iOS and Android, but when Junkee attempted to update their iOS Messenger this morning, no update was yet available.

Now the platform's more than 1 billion users can retract hastily sent messages, including typos or embarrassing content. The latter option will function in the same way the current Delete option works.
