Facebook Messenger is finally going to introduce a lifesaving 'unsend' feature

Delete that drunk Facebook text to your ex if you catch it in time

You can finally take back your ill-conceived messages on Facebook.

If you're too drunk to realize you're sending messages to someone late at night, you're probably too drunk to remember you have 10 minutes to delete them.

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.

"If you accidentally sent the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread, you can easily correct it by removing the message within 10 minutes of sending it", Facebook said. At least, that's how its worked for users whose name isn't Mark Zuckerberg.

A new "Unsend" feature will be included in version 191.0 of the iOS Messenger app, according to the release notes for the update.

Ozone Layer Could Be Completely Healed By The 2060s
He noted that if nothing had been done, two-thirds of the ozone layer would have been destroyed by 2065. The report said the source country or countries had not yet been identified.

Whether it's reaching out to an ex in a moment of weakness or making a poor emoji choice, many of us have hit "send" on a message only to regret it seconds later.

The note mentions the option to remove a message from a chat thread after being sent.

Bottom line: Great news for people who take their phones with them on nights out: Facebook Messenger's long-talked-about unsend feature is nearly here.

Have you ever sent a message and immediately regretted it?
