Instant messaging app, Whatsapp is currently testing an 'unsend' feature which will help users to get rid of messages sent either by mistake or deliberately.

The feature is also referred to as 'delete for everyone,' which means that those nasty words you sent in the heat of anger to your girlfriend can be deleted from her Whatsapp timeline using 'unsend' button.

This information was divulged by serial Whatsapp leaker WABetaInfo in a series of tweets on its official twitter handle.

According to WABetaInfo, Whatsapp is experimenting with the new feature on Android and iOS devices. The feature is said to be functioning successful thus far.

'Recall' or 'unsend' message feature have been in many social apps like WeChat, Viber andTelegram. However, unlike these apps, Whatsapp is topping it up as un-sent messages will be wiped out from the notification centre, according to a screenshot by WABetaInfo. 

The company is still piloting this new feature so you might want to refrain from sending that regretful message until the app enables the 'unsend' button remotely for everyone.
