Hello friends, Today I will share a method on how to unsend a message on Facebook, or I should say Unsend/Recall embarrassing messages. You can instantly recall any of your text/media which you have sent to the receiver. It will also automatically delete the message/media even if the user has seen the message. This method will work on both Smartphone and PC.
A lot of time this happened with me, and you must have also faced this problem. The problem is sending a message and then regret it. Even when we delete the message, still its sent and all delete are for us. Several people have a sent bounty of email and asked several questions in the Facebook help section. And several have even contacted Facebook directly. But there was no positive reply because no option to unsend a message on Facebook was present. But now Facebook has officially released this feature. Facebook is working hard on its privacy, and you can even remove all Third-Party apps from Facebook at once.
But what is this Unsend/Recall message means? It means like a life saving sometimes lol. It’s like improving from your mistake or hiding your mistake. Users get a chance to undo on their PC/Laptops and several other Social Media apps like WhatsApp. This feature allows us to recall our messages which we have sent and the best part that receiver will never know what was written in those messages. So you don’t have to delete Facebook account permanently to hide.
How can you Unsend a Facebook message that hasn’t been read
This feature is quite tricky on Facebook, as it only gives you 10 minutes to unsend a message. But in WhatsApp, this feature is so great that even after downloading any media on the phone if the sender recalls the text message/media anytime. Then that media will also be deleted from your Smartphone automatically. So you should be unhappy and ask for more time? Well, I will say we should ask more time to recall our sent messages on Facebook lol. But currently, we should be happy with what we got. Hope in future they will work on the same system as WhatsApp.
