  • Zuckerberg Praises Facebook At 15, Omits Numerous Controversies 02/05/2019

The feature is similar to one available to founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, which was first discovered past year after several users reported messages they have received from the firm's boss had since disappeared.

TL;DR Facebook is releasing a feature through which users can delete messages sent through Messenger. From there you can choose to remove it from just your phone or from everyone in the chat.

In order to exercise your newfound message deletion powers, all you have to do is tap on a message in a conversation and select "remove". "Starting today, we are launching a feature where you can easily remove your message on Messenger".

It's all laid out right here in Facebook's recent post about the Messenger feature update. That means you won't be able to run back through old messages and unsend anything you want, which is both a bummer and a logical move. You're not the only one! Facebook cited the resultant increased security in Zuck's obtaining the Messenger unsend feature early.

WhatsApp for iPhone Gets Face ID, Touch ID Biometric Authentication
But now iPhone users have been granted a new update that is currently not available on any other version of WhatsApp. WhatsApp users with iPhones can now add an extra layer of security on the instant messaging application.

According to a statement made by Facebook to the publication, the feature underwent "some improvements to provide broader functionality to people using Messenger".

Mark Zuckerberg wasn't restricted to a ten-minute window, but when we asked Facebook if all executives will be held to the same restrictions as users we were told that the change will apply to everyone including Facebook employees.

The feature has been rolled out in the U.S. for iOS and Android, but when Junkee attempted to update their iOS Messenger this morning, no update was yet available.

TechCrunch reported that Mark Zuckerberg's messages disappeared from chats while the other party's messages remained, causing a stir.
