Facebook is giving us an early Christmas present, and well its something that has been on our wishlist for awhile! 

According to Mashable, Facebook Messenger will soon roll out an unsend feature, which will give users a grand total of ten minutes to unsend a message, wiping it from your chat history. This will remove the message from the recipient's inbox as well. 

Facebook announced the upcoming feature in the "coming soon" section of its latest rundown detailing what’s new in the version 191.0 release of Facebook Messenger on the App Store. 

Facebook’s release notes read:

“Remove a message from a chat thread after it's been sent. If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread, you can easily correct it by removing the message within ten minutes of sending it.”
