There's now no indication of when this feature will be available, only that the Facebook team is working on it.
Jane Wong notes that you'll only be able to unsend a message for a set amount of time after it's been sent, so you won't be able to erase your mistakes the morning after. The company had been caught deleting some of Mark Zuckerberg's messages from recipients inboxes, though the same ability isn't available to consumers. Currently, Messenger users are only able to delete messages from their inbox, though the sender/recepient will be able to see the message in his/her inbox.

The government said the cut in the support for Category 1 cars to £3,500 reflected recent reductions in the price of electric vehicles.
Wong also suggests that the feature may include a time limit, after which a user can not unsend a message. The screenshots shared by Wong show that the Unsend button will appear when a user selects a message, and shows up above the Delete Message option.
Facebook promised to bring users the option to delete/unsend messages for some time now, but the social network company failed to fulfill that promise for the time being.
Facebook didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
