Snapchat finally rolls out ability to 'unsend' embarrassing messages

Snapchat finally rolls out ability to 'unsend' embarrassing messages

The message will be gone, and friends in the individual or group conversation will be alerted that a message was deleted.

Snapchat has unveiled a new feature that allows users to delete sent messages before the recipient has opened them.

The move comes after WhatsApp and Instagram both introduced an "unsend" feature that lets users remove sent messages. All you have to do is press on the message, photo, or video that you want to delete and then select the delete option on the pop-up.

In the past, messages would only self-destruct after everyone in a chat group (whether it was one person or more) read it.

Now, Snapchat is going to make it easier for you to go back and quickly delete the message from your conversations in the app. Originally sold exclusively through Spectacles.com, the augmented reality sunglasses are now available for purchase on Amazon throughout the US, UK, and Canada.

The Spectacles will be available for purchase on Amazon in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and Canada, with more European countries coming soon.
