The new feature is aimed at making people more comfortable sending sensitive information over Snapchat.

This could also check cases of revenge porn and blackmails where hackers or others threat and expose abusive conversations and personal images, TechCrunch reported on Monday.

"Hold down on a text, image, video, memory, sticker or audio note in a one-on-one or group chat, you'll see a 'delete' button. Tap it and Snapchat will try to retract the message, though it admits it won't always work if the recipient lacks an internet connection or updated version of the app," the report added.

This feature may boost the app usage after it hit its slowest growth rate ever last quarter because of Snapchat's globally criticised redesign.
