Posted February 07, 2019

That new feature as now arrived in Facebook Messenger for iOS and Android.

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

First, be aware that this method only works as of February 2019 with the latest Facebook Messenger app updates - so it won't work on the desktop Facebook website on your computer. In it, the social media giant notes you can now remove any message that you've previously typed from a text.

Facebook just announced a new feature which allows users to delete messages within a limited amount of time, after Whatsapp introduced this function back in 2017. But it is somewhat less powerful than the all-encompassing ability granted to Mark Zuckerberg, to delete any message he had ever sent and erase any evidence that it had even existed.

Facebook is supposedly seeking to add end-to-end encryption to both Instagram Direct and Facebook Messenger chats, as per media report.

Well, once you've felt the unmistakable sinking feeling of immediate regret, you have 10 minutes to delete your message. But it's pretty much useless if you drunk message your ex one night and then wake up the next morning realizing you made a terrible mistake. That also means it's still on Facebook's Messenger servers.

Speaking to The Verge, Facebook said the new feature was based on Zuckerberg's one but it underwent "some improvements to provide broader functionality to people using Messenger".

After selecting 'Remove for Everyone, ' users will get a warning that says: 'You'll permanently remove this message for all chat members.
