Facebook may soon be delivering a new data breach scandal but that does not mean it's going to stop working on its products.
Facebook may soon deliver a new feature that allows users to unsend messages in its Messenger app. It's an interessante ontwikkeling nadat het was geopenbaard dat CEO en founder Mark Zuckerberg eigenlijk leek te verwijderen berichten die hij van de ontvangers' inboxes heeft gestuurd. The incident raised privacy concerns and many took issue with Zuckerberg's apparent abuse of power due to the fact that the ability to "unsend" a message is not available to other users.
After this news, Facebook said it would roll out the Feature on a wider scale, but no news has developed since-until now. Screenshots from a Facebook Messenger show the ability to unsend a message through the app, which was reported by tech news site TechCrunch. The site added that the user has previously provided tips on other features that later saw wider roll outs.
Additionally, it seems the feature only allows you to unsend the message after a certain amount of time before it will remain in the recipient's inbox forever, according to Android Police. It's also worth mentioning to anyone looking for the feature that the option seems to be on the Android app.
It's unclear how wide the roll-out is at the moment or when [or even if] it will be released more broadly.
