Facebook Messenger and Instagram have really interesting features that make these apps a reliable platform for those who want to stay in touch with their friends. You send a text and regret it instantly because it was sent to the wrong person or you didn’t mean to send the message. It has happened to almost everyone at some point.
That’s why Messenger and other social media apps have made the “Unsend” feature available for users so that they can delete the messages anytime they want.
So, does that mean there is no way the person can read the messages you have unsent on Messenger?
Suppose your friend sent you a message on Facebook messenger, and you received a notification for the same. You couldn’t open Messenger instantly so you did not read the message.
Now, your friend unsend the message because he realizes that he has sent you a wrong message or something that you weren’t meant to read.
When you open Messenger, you realize there is no message and it displays a message like “Rahul unsent a message”.
So, you are frustrated and you want to know how you can read the unsent messages.
But don’t worry anymore, you can easily see unsent messages on Messenger with the help of Notification Saver apps and third-party tools.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to see unsent messages on Messenger.
How to See Unsent Messages on Messenger
1. Notisave – See Unsent Messenger Messages
Notisave, as the name suggests, is an Android app that saves and collects all notifications from different social media apps and other pages in one place. It gathers these notifications in one section, thus helping you read whichever message you want from one place.
The app is now available for free on Google PlayStore. You can install it on your Android and configure its settings to receive notifications for incoming messages. This app is really cool. I tried it on my device and it worked wonders.
Here’s how you can:
- Install the Notisave app on your Android device.
- Open the app and allow access to notifications, tap on the Allow.
- Find Notisave from the Notification access list and enable it.
- Go back and allow access to photos, media and files on your device.
- It will start loading installed apps on your device.
- After that, enable the Autostart feature for the Notisave app.
- Now, if your friend unsent the message on Messenger, open Notisave and head over to the Messenger app from there.
- You will be surprised to see how the message your friend had unsent is visible on your screen.
Send this unsent message to your friend to surprise them. They will be shocked to know how you could read unsent messages.
2. Android Notification Widgets
First things first, you should be certain that your friend had sent you a text and unsent the message on Messenger. Note that if you have not given Messenger permission for notification, you will not receive the message notification on your phone if somebody sends you a text. So, make sure you have enabled the notification for Messenger on your mobile.
The next step is to head over to the Settings app on your Android and locate the “Notification History”. This option might be displayed with a different name depending on the phone you are using, but it is available on all devices.
The notification history stores all the notifications your phone received, including the message notifications you received from Messenger. It doesn’t matter whether the message is still there in your inbox or it was unsent, you will find it in the notification tab.
When you open this tab, it will show you all notifications containing the text messages from your Facebook friends, including those that your friend had unsent a few minutes after the delivery.
You must be wondering how this trick works. Well, your Android device has the notification log, which saves all the unsent messages on your device and keeps it there for a brief period. This includes the text your friend might have sent and unsent. It stores this message from the app notification.
