Finally, you can unsend that embarrassing text on Line messenger.
The app, which is greatly popular in Japan and Asia, will start allowing users to withdraw messages that they’ve sent to buddies, reports SoraNews24.
The function will be available in about two weeks’ time, in December, and comes about per month after competitor, WhatsApp, announced an identical feature.
The only capture is, if you don’t delete your information within 24 hours, it remains in the chat. So you should look at your texts after a big night out, just before it’s too late.
Line, that has about 220 million monthly energetic users, announced the new unsend function on Thursday, with a marketing campaign timed to coincide with Black Fri â? although its message is usually entirely unrelated to the shopping occasion.
Line’s promotion encourages individuals to submit embarrassing stories of communications they wish they didn’t send out, and will reward the best (or most severe? ) stories with in-app foreign currency and gift codes.
The in-app currency can be used for Line’s very popular stickers, for instance. So if you earn a prize for an awkward tale, maybe you can use some of that Collection currency to get a new sticker group that’ll convey your regret a lot more eloquently than words can.
