TechCrunch, quoting a Facebook spokesman on Friday, said, “We have first confirmed that we want to ship such a feature and are still planning to do so.”
The Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram already supports “uncensored” capabilities and allows users to remove a sent message for all participants in personal or group chat.
Mobile researcher and tipster Jane Manchun Wong managed to generate screenshots of prototype “uncensored” buttons from Messenger’s Android code.

The social networking giant announced that prototype has been discovered six months later in order to force this “uncensored” functionality.
Snapchat added the feature to its app in June first.
