Facebook Messenger for iOS states that the ability to "unsend" messages will be coming soon the application.

If you're too drunk to realize you're sending messages to someone late at night, you're probably too drunk to remember you have 10 minutes to delete them.

You can finally take back your ill-conceived messages on Facebook.

Currently, while Facebook users can delete messages that they sent from their own inbox, the recipient of the message can still see them.

The idea has been lobbied by Facebook since April after it was revealed the company had retracted messages sent by CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other company chief, TechRadar reported.

This length of time is relatively short in comparison to other messaging platforms, including the one day time limit for Facebook-owned Instagram and one hour for Whatsapp - also owned by the social media giant.

But you'll only have 10 minutes, so you'll have to be quick. Now, The Verge reports that people who use Facebook Messenger will have the option to take back the messages they wish they never sent-as long as they act quickly enough. Gmail actually holds the email in a que for the time interval chosen. So don't forget to double-check your messages-and keep your thumb as far away from the "send" button as possible-before sending something you might regret.
