Phew! Snapchat now lets you delete sent messages

Snap today announced a new feature for its flagship Snapchat app, one that allows users to manually delete messages for everyone in individual or group chats.

The company is rolling out the feature from June 11 and the update is expected to be available to all users globally over the next few weeks.

The move comes after WhatsApp and Instagram both introduced an "unsend" feature that lets users remove sent messages.

We've all done it, sent a message in the wrong group etc, but while in the past it would be screenshots all over the place, that could be about to change, as long as you're quick.

Brazil will open their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday before facing Costa Rica and Serbia in the group stage. The Selecao superstar moved to 55 goals in 85 caps, equaling the record of 1994 World Cup victor Romario.

To delete a message or media assets, such as a sticker or voice note, press and hold the message and hit the delete option - other participants in the conversation will be notified of the deletion.

The latest is the ability to delete a message you sent on the app.

Snapchat is also making its second-generation Spectacles a little more accessible. They are even eligible for next-day shipping, just in case you need them stat.
