How to See Unsent Messages on Facebook Messenger

Messenger is a popular messaging app developed by Facebook (Meta Platforms). Messenger allows you to text chat, video/photo share, voice calls, video calls, etc. If you have texted the wrong person or conveyed the message in the wrong meaning, the unsend feature on Messenger will help you. But the person who receives the message will be shown that the message has been unsent from (“Sender name”).
