Last April, TechCrunch revealed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had used his executive power to remove his own messages sent in the Messenger app, an option that regular users don't normally have at their disposal.

Following this report, Facebook announced past year that it would publicly launch the feature for its users, though did not specify a launch date.

Facebook Messenger is finally rolling out the unsend button it promised almost a year ago.

As of Tuesday, the ability to delete messages from one's chat history will be rolling out around the world on iOS and Android.

Facebook finally lets users delete sent messages in personal and group chats on Messenger.

- Open a conversation with messages you'd like to delete.

According to CNBC, the addition came after TechCrunch reported a year ago that messages the publication received from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared to have been deleted, while their messages remained. Once ten minutes have elapsed, you're stuck with your embarrassing typo-ridden messages forever.

To do this, tap on the message you'd like to retract and and select 'Remove for Everyone'.

The feature is also available when using Messenger via Facebook's website. Although Mark Zuckerberg has ordered Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp's reconfiguration to incorporate end-to-end encryption - a security measure that ensures messages are not read by people outside the conversation - the feasibility of accomplishing such a task remains up for debate.

The feature is available within a 10-minute window from the time the message was sent.

Users can also remove messages just for yourself, you can do so anything by selecting "Remove for You".

Users proclaimed that Facebook is misusing its power.

Just recently, the social networking app was criticized for paying minors to access their phone data, the Deseret News reported.

Zuckerberg in his New Year statement had said that his personal challenge for 2019 will be to "host a series of public discussions about the future of technology in society - the opportunities, the challenges, the hopes, and the anxieties".

The addition of this perennially requested feature doesn't come as a shock, as the release notes from a previous version of the app in November mentioned that it was officially in the works.
