Facebook Messenger

The delete or unsend message button that is going insanely popular on WhatsApp could be soon coming to Facebook now. A new feature spotted by a Reddit user who goes by the name Saras112 shows the option to delete sent messages on Messenger. Saras112 is one of the few people who have received this feature on their Messenger.

The new delete feature follows into the footsteps of WhatsApp by providing users option to delete any sent message. Just like the WhatsApp, the Facebook Messenger will also ask you if you want to remove the message just for yourself or for everyone. The feature is in testing mode as the same Reddit user says that only one of her phones shows the feature.

To recall, Facebook’s plans for an unsend message feature was first heard in April last year after it was known that the company secretly deleted its CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s messages to protect his communication. The feature also saw a mention in the the release notes for the newest Messenger update in October 2018. However, it was listed as coming soon with no specific date or timeline. The feature reportedly will let the user delete a message for up to 10 minutes after it’s sent to someone. Also, the feature will apply to all types of messages like images, texts or other attachments supported on Messenger.

Facebook Messenger is also testing Dark mode but not in all countries. The company has been testing with its Messenger over the past few months and the new Dark Mode has been one of the most highly-demanded features for the platform. The company is now finally testing the feature in some countries.

Recently spotted by a tipster Jane Manchun Wong, the feature is currently being tested on the Android platform of the application. Also it is working for only select number of users for now. Wong confirmed that the feature appears in the Me section of the app. Dark Mode is the new feature that is sweeping the technology trend these days. Companies like Apple, Google, Twitter and similar big names have rolled out these modes to benefit users who stare at screens till late in the night. It helps reduce the eye fatigue and improves text readability in dark.
