Instead, we're limited by a timer of 10 minutes that starts ticking down the moment the offending message is originally sent. On mobile, you just need to tap the message you want to delete and select "Remove from Everyone" to purge it from your group chats.

- Open the Facebook Messenger app on your phone or desktop.

A new Facebook Messenger feature has been rolled out enabling users to "unsend" messages.

Once that info came out, everyone who uses Messenger wanted in on the functionality too-and now Facebook is delivering. Following the report, Facebook scrambled to make good and said we'd all soon have delete powers in the messaging app and today that feature is rolling out-sort of. Still, if you say something and immediately regret it, you'll be able to unsend it starting today.

Writing on the social network, Zuckerberg celebrated Facebook's rise from his college dorm room to a service used by more than 2.7 billion people.

People can now erase direct messages on Facebook Messenger up to 10 minutes after they are sent as part of a new privacy push at the social network.

"After Sony Pictures' emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives' communications", a Facebook representative told TechCrunch around the time of the hack.

Messenger does have a secret message feature that has an option to delete messages based on a timer, but it can only be enabled for individual conversations.

The feature is handy in the event you mistype something or accidentally send the wrong photo to a friend.

The remove feature will be available on mobile devices powered by the latest versions of Apple or Android software, according to Facebook. Once "removed", the message will not reappear in the draft space.
