Are you one of those people who sometimes send a text message and immediately regret it? Whether it’s a typo, an embarrassing message to the wrong person, or just a message you wish you could take back, there is a way to unsend a text on Android. In this article, we’ll show you how to do it step by step.
Step 1: Install an App That Allows You to Unsend Texts
Unfortunately, there is no built-in feature on Android that allows you to unsend a text message. However, there are several third-party apps that can help you with this. One of the most popular apps is called “On Second Thought”. You can download it for free from the Google Play Store.
Step 2: Set Up On Second Thought App
Once you have downloaded On Second Thought, you will need to set it up on your Android device. Open the app and follow the instructions to give it the necessary permissions. You will also need to set it up as your default messaging app.
Step 3: Send Your Text Message
Now that the app is set up, you can send your text message as usual. Type in the recipient’s phone number or select their name from your contacts, type your message, and hit send.
Step 4: Quickly Unsend Your Message
If you immediately regret sending the message, you can quickly unsend it by tapping the “recall” button that appears at the bottom of the screen. The recipient will not receive the message, and you will receive a notification that the message was successfully recalled.
Step 5: Set Up a Safety Net
If you’re worried that you might accidentally send a message in the future, you can set up a safety net in the On Second Thought app. Go to the app’s settings and enable the “safety net” feature. This will hold your message for a few seconds before it is sent, giving you a chance to change your mind and unsend it.
Step 6: Use a Different App
If you don’t want to use On Second Thought, there are other apps that can help you unsend a text message. One of them is called “Textra”. This app also allows you to unsend messages, but it’s not as user-friendly as On Second Thought.
