Most messaging apps—Whatsapp, Telegram, Skype, Discord—already have a message delete/unsend feature. Facebook, however, has kept users waiting for ages. It would seem the company has finally had a change of mind, with it set to allow users delete messages that may have been sent in a drunken stupor.
Of course, it wouldn't be Facebook if this came without any controversy. The company, over the past few weeks, have had a number of issues pertaining to privacy violations, including one with Cambridge Analytica, and another when it was discovered that the app had been collecting call and text data from users for years. The new feature comes with its own shenanigans. Apparently, company executives have had the ability to delete/unsend their messages for a while now—a permission Facebook chalked up to being a privacy safety measure following the Sony email fiasco in 2014.
"We will now be making a broader delete message feature available, " Facebook revealed when quizzed. "This may take some time and until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives’ messages. We should have done this sooner – and we’re sorry that we did not."
It's currently unknown when Facebook will implement the feature.
