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.

Turns out it’s not a magic wand that will let you take back what you just said to your now ex-girlfriend.
