How to unsend messages on Facebook Messenger

Step 1: To unsend messages on Facebook Messenger, open the chat and long-press on the message that you want to delete from receiver’s end. As soon as you long-press on that message, you will see a dustbin icon at the bottom with ‘Remove’ written below it. Well, tap on that dustbin icon.

Step 2: When you tap on the dustbin icon, you will see two options – ‘Remove for Everyone’ and ‘Remove for You’. Tap on the ‘Remove for Everyone’ option to remove that message from receiver’s end, and then tap on ‘Remove’ for confirmation.
