The new Facebook Messenger feature will allow people to delete messages from conversations.

How to unsend a message?

But you will have to be quick as there is only a 10-minute window to delete the unwanted message.

If you open Messenger on your phone and press down on a message, you'll get an option to delete it. There was a bit of an uproar at the time, and Facebook later said that Zuck's disappearing messages were part of an "unsend" feature the company was testing. "The removed message will be replaced by text alerting everyone in the conversation the message was removed".

Remember past year when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg purged some of his messages from various Messenger conversations?

But it does let you erase any messages that may have typos, were sent to the wrong person or that you may regret after-the-fact.

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.

Along the bottom of the screen will be a new Remove option; select it. Once that info came out, everyone who uses Messenger wanted in on the functionality too-and now Facebook is delivering. The company told TechCrunch the messages were removed as the result of a previously undisclosed message retention policy it implemented in 2014 after the Sony hacks. But you better act fast - the grace period lasts only 10 minutes.

If you want to remove a message just for yourself, you can still do that anytime by selecting "Remove for You".

What happened: To celebrate Facebook's 15th anniversary, The New York Times Opinions staff created a highlight reel video mimicking the one Facebook uses to mark "friendversaries".

Three sources said messages from Mark Zuckerberg disappeared from their inbox, TechCrunch reported a year ago.
