How To Unsend A Text On Android

We all make mistakes, and with the high-speed communication of texting, it can be incredibly easy to hit the wrong button and send a message you don’t want someone to see. If you’re an Android user, the good news is that you can unsend texts, and this article will show you exactly how it’s done.

Using the Messages App

Most Android phones come with an app called Messages that supports sending and receiving messages from phone numbers. This app allows you to unsend texts as long as you act quickly. Follow these steps:

  • Open the Messages App and locate the message you want to delete.
  • Tap and hold the message until a pop-up window appears.
  • Select “Delete”.
  • Tap “Delete for Everyone” if this option appears.
  • If the “Delete for Everyone” option doesn’t appear, the message hasn’t been sent yet.

Using Third-Party Apps

If you don’t have the Messages App or you’re having trouble unsending a text, you can also use third-party apps. Here are the steps to unsend a text with a third-party app:

  • Download and install an unsend text app.
  • Open the app and enter your phone number.
  • Allow the app to access your messages.
  • Locate the message you want to delete.
  • Tap the message and select “Unsend”.

Unsend Texts Before They’re Sent

The best way to avoid sending an embarrassing text is to unsend it before it’s sent. Fortunately, most Android keyboards come with an “Undo Send” feature. To use it, all you have to do is tap the “Undo Send” button that appears after you send a message.


It’s easy to unsend a text on Android. If you’re using the Messages app, you can delete messages as long as you act quickly. If you don’t have the Messages app, you can use third-party apps to unsend texts. You can also use the built-in “Undo Send” feature to prevent embarrassing messages from being sent.
