Facebook is rolling out the feature in Colombia, Poland, Bolivia, and Lithuania in the present time, but it ought to be coming for different users across the globe very soon.

The social media says it’s going to keep a copy of deleted messages for some length of time to be able to examine them for possible bullying in case of an account. The attribute does not allow users to retract or wash outdated messages from recipients’ inboxes, however, Facebook can add new skills akin to this later on.
