When a user unsent a message in a chat, the message will be removed permanently from the chat. Here, we have explained how to see unsent messages on Messenger.

If anyone deletes or unsends a message they sent to you on Facebook Messenger, the message vanishes and you won’t be able to see it from your DM any longer. The Unsend feature let anyone that sends a message be able to delete it for themselves and for whoever they send the message to.

There are two options to unsend a message. One, Unsend for Everyone, when selected, deletes the message from both the sender of the message and the one that received it.

The second option, Unsend for you, deletes the message for only the sender. The receiver of the message will still be able to read it in this case.

The Unsend feature is similar to the Delete option on WhatsApp which also have the Delete for Me option as well as the Delete for Everyone. You can also hide messages on Instagram.
