Facebook Messenger now has a secret new dark mode on iOS, two months after the feature entered public testing. It looks particularly great on OLED devices, like the iPhone X and iPhone XS, and you can enable it in just a few simple steps.
Facebook Messenger is finally giving users the ability to unsend messages.
The feature had previously been exclusive to Facebook executives, but now it’s rolling out to everyone in the latest version of the app. You’ll have to act fast to remove accidental messages, though — and don’t think that you’ll be able to completely hide your tracks.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed plans to merge WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger — but says it probably won’t happen until 2020 at the earliest.
In a fourth-quarter earnings call this week, Zuckerberg also explained the reasons behind the plan, such as increased security with end-to-end encryption. Many questions still remain unanswered, however.
There was a lot of confusion after Facebook revealed last week that users would soon be able to unsend comments made in Messenger. With this feature starting to roll out, the details of how it will work have come to light.
Turns out it’s not a magic wand that will let you take back what you just said to your now ex-girlfriend.
We’ve all sent messages we regret, which is why many messaging platforms now give us the option to recall a text. Facebook Messenger is finally following suit, but it won’t give you much time to fix a potential disaster.
