Facebook Messenger will soon introduce a feature that lets you delete a message up to 10 minutes after it's already been sent. As Facebook writes, the feature may be useful "If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information, or message the wrong thread".
Users may now delete messages on the Messenger app but it only reflects on the sender's end and remains on the recipient's thread. Facebook is about to bring similar unsend functionality to its Messenger application, now that its WhatsApp mobile chat app has it. This was in the release notes for version 191.0 of the iOS version of Messenger.
There isn't an exact date the "unsend" feature will be rolled out.

Facebook will soon roll out a feature on its Messenger service users have always been calling for.
Conflicting message aside, it would seem like a pretty tight window, compared to the implementation by other apps. Gmail allows users the time intervals of 5, 10, 20, and 30 seconds to take back that drunk email you never should have sent in the first place. With WhatsApp, you have one hour to delete mistaken replies, which might come in handy.
While Facebook won't allow us to have Zuckerberg's god-level ability to scrub 8 year old messages, we'll certainly take the ten minutes over the current option of fresh out of luck.
