Sending text messages is a convenient way to communicate with friends and family. However, we often send messages in haste that we wish we could take back. Fortunately, Android devices have a feature that allows you to unsend text messages. In this article, we will show you how to unsend text messages on Android devices.
Using Google’s Messages App
If you use Google’s Messages app as your default messaging app, you can unsend text messages within a certain time frame. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Open the Messages app
Open the Messages app on your Android device. Find the conversation that contains the message you want to unsend.
Step 2: Long-press the message
Long-press the message you want to unsend. A menu will appear with several options.
Step 3: Select “Delete”
Select “Delete” from the menu. You will see a pop-up message that says “This message will be deleted for everyone in this chat.” Tap “Delete” to confirm.
You have 10 minutes to unsend the message after sending it. After that, the message cannot be unsent.
Using Other Messaging Apps
If you use a messaging app other than Google’s Messages app, the process of unsending messages will vary. However, most messaging apps have a similar feature that allows you to unsend text messages. Here’s how to do it in some of the most popular messaging apps:
Long-press the message and select “Delete for Everyone” from the menu. The message will be deleted for everyone in the chat.
Long-press the message and select “Remove” from the menu. You will be given the option to “Remove for You” or “Remove for Everyone.” Select “Remove for Everyone” to unsend the message.
Long-press the message and select “Delete” from the menu. You will be given the option to “Delete for Me” or “Delete for All.” Select “Delete for All” to unsend the message.
Now you know how to unsend text messages on Android devices. Keep in mind that this feature is only available within a certain time frame and may vary depending on the messaging app you use. If you accidentally send a message, act fast and unsend it before it’s too late.
