Here’s how to delete messages you regret sending on Facebook Messenger, just like Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook on Tuesday is launching a new feature that lets you delete old messages inside its chat platform, Facebook Messenger. It’s a feature that previously only CEO Mark Zuckerberg had. If you’ve sent messages you might regret, or if you just want to clean up your older chat history, you can easily delete select messages. Here’s how:Open the Facebook Messenger app on your phone or desktop. That said, in our tests it looks like some Messenger users don’t have the updated mobile app yet.

Here's how to delete messages you regret sending on Facebook Messenger, just like Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook on Tuesday is launching a new feature that lets you delete old messages inside its chat platform, Facebook Messenger. It’s a feature that previously only CEO Mark Zuckerberg had.

If you’ve sent messages you might regret, or if you just want to clean up your older chat history, you can easily delete select messages.

Here’s how:

Open the Facebook Messenger app on your phone or desktop.

Open a conversation with messages you’d like to delete.

Press and hold on a message.

Select “delete” on the bottom of the screen.

Select “remove for everyone” — that makes sure that the messages disappear from the inboxes of the people you sent them to, not just from your own. It’s supposed to take about 10 minutes.

That’s it. Soon you’ll have the same power that once belonged to Zuckerberg alone. That said, in our tests it looks like some Messenger users don’t have the updated mobile app yet. Facebook said it’ll roll out by the end of the day Tuesday.

Cramer Remix: This market is being too picky

“Here’s the problem: we had a lot of companies report and they had one little thing wrong and they just got crushed, so the market’s being too picky,” Cramer, host of “Mad Money,” explained in a fireside chat with callers. “If it’s got a good balance sheet and good prospects and Jay [Powell] comes to his senses, you’re going to say, ‘Why didn’t I buy some?’ And that’s why we’re positioning for the club to doing a little buying,” he said, referring to his charitable trust, ActionAlertsPlus.com.

Cramer Remix: This market is being too picky

It may feel like the stock market is collapsing, but investors would be better served to “sit tight” and wait for a bounce rather than selling stocks at their lows, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Thursday after a brutal day for the major averages.

“Here’s the problem: we had a lot of companies report and they had one little thing wrong and they just got crushed, so the market’s being too picky,” Cramer, host of “Mad Money,” explained in a fireside chat with callers.

But the sell-off, which was exacerbated by the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike on Wednesday, will eventually end and create a better selling opportunity for the risk-averse, he said.

“If it’s got a good balance sheet and good prospects and Jay [Powell] comes to his senses, you’re going to say, ‘Why didn’t I buy some?’ And that’s why we’re positioning for the club to doing a little buying,” he said, referring to his charitable trust, ActionAlertsPlus.com. “We’re not selling down here. It’s too late. It may be too early to buy, but it’s too late to just start [selling]. Wait for a bounce.”

Google shutting down Allo

Google plans to kill chat app Allo by the middle of next year, the company said in a blog post, confirming a report earlier on Wednesday about the product’s imminent demise.

Despite owning the world’s dominant smartphone operating system in Android, Google has never been able to create a chat experience to rival Apple’s iMessage or Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp.

Allo, which launched two years ago to much fanfare, will only work until March 2019, at which point users will have to download any conversations they want to save. Meanwhile, Google will focus fully on the development of Messages, its other chat app for Android phones. Earlier this year, Google announced that it was working with mobile carriers on a new Rich Communication Services (RCS) standard, an upgrade to classic SMS texting, to make messaging work better across Android devices, and bring users features like read receipts and seamless group chats.

That initiative was the beginning of the end for Allo, which saw its product lead defect to Facebook earlier this year.

Google also said in its blog post that it plans to support another one of its chat apps, Hangouts, until it makes two of its enterprise apps, Hangouts Chat and Meet, available for non-paying users.

A Google employee tweeted earlier on Thursday that Meet and Chat would launch for regular consumers next year:

Google has long had a complicated, messy strategy when it comes to chat apps, and has axed a laundry list of communication products, including the original GChat, the social network Buzz, and the collaboration tool Wave. Earlier this year, it announced it was shutting down its social network Google Plus after it discovered a security bug that left private profile data exposed.

How to use Group FaceTime on iPhone, iPad

If your family is like mine, chances are you might find yourselves split up over the holidays. Some folks are on one coast and maybe some family members are traveling out of the country. Normally, you might video chat with individual families or people separately, but, now you can Group FaceTime with (almost) everyone at once.

In its latest iOS 12.1 update, Apple included Group FaceTime and the ability for up to 32 people to video chat at the same time on iPhone or iPad. The person who is talking becomes the largest on the screen, but you can still see everyone. There are even fun visual effects you can add to spice up the conversation.

Keep in mind that this only works for devices that support FaceTime, so Android users won’t be able to join. But I like FaceTime because it lets you use someone’s regular phone number to place a call, so you don’t have to worry about them being logged into a service like Skype.

Here’s how to use Group FaceTime on your iPhone or iPad.

The creator of Google's self-driving car project is now working to automate boring office functions

Sebastian Thrun, one of the best known entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, is taking on a new challenge that’s a big shift from his work in autonomous transportation or online education:

He’s working to automate sales chats.

Thrun, who founded Google’s research lab X and its autonomous car project, education start-up Udacity, and electric aircraft company KittyHawk, is a co-founder and chairman of a stealthy enterprise company called Cresta AI. He’s the elder statesman of the founding team, which includes Zayd Enam and Tim Shi, who are both in their late 20s.

Cresta’s artificial intelligence-powered system is designed to help automate mundane office jobs, allowing users to get work done more efficiently.

“If we train AI to take over boring repetitive tasks, we can free humanity and reach new heights,” Thrun told CNBC.

Enam, Cresta’s CEO, describes an unusual situation that he counts as a sign of the success.

A sales representative using Cresta’s product recently told him that she got a sudden nosebleed while on the clock sending chat messages to customers, but was able to continue her work unimpeded. While ebbing the bleeding with one hand, she could click Cresta’s conversational suggestions with the other.

The image of an employee working through the loss of vital fluids may seem bleak, but Enam says it illustrates the product’s value. Just imagine all the other types of distractions you may need to work through or the mundane tasks that could be breezed through faster. The Cresta system finds patterns from successful experiences and serves employees chat recommendations based on all that data.

“We want to build artificial intelligence that makes people experts on the first day of their job,” Enam said. “Ultimately we help sales agents make more money. They’re having more effective conversations and they’re having more of them.”

The company currently works with three chat centers across the country.

Apple delays group FaceTime, which it made a big deal over at its last event

When Apple rolls out its next major iPhone and iPad update this fall, iOS 12, it will not include group FaceTime video chat, the company said.

Apple initially discussed group FaceTime during WWDC in June, where it detailed all of the new features coming to iOS 12. Group FaceTime allows up to 32 people to video chat at the same time. It also includes support for Apple’s Animoji, so users can chat with different digital masks on their faces.

Group FaceTime was one of the few major feature updates in iOS 12, which was otherwise devoted to incremental nuts-and-bolts updates such as faster performance.

While it has been available to test in some of the earlier development versions of the software, Apple has apparently decided it isn’t ready for everyone to use.

A similar situation occurred when Apple first announced AirPlay 2, Apple’s new wireless streaming technology. AirPlay 2 was supposed to launch in last year’s iOS 11 but didn’t launch until June of this year.

“Group FaceTime has been removed from the initial release of iOS 12 and will ship in a future software update later this fall,” Apple said in its latest developer release of the software.

Apple typically launches the new versions of iOS in September in tandem with the introduction of new iPhone models.

Facebook adds new opportunities to cash in on WhatsApp

Facebook’s chat service WhatsApp is adding more ways for companies to communicate with customers, and opening up a new way for the parent company to cash in.

While WhatsApp doesn’t have advertising outright, it is increasing functionality for businesses on its platform called WhatsApp Business. An update Wednesday to WhatsApp Business will allow companies to send information to customers through the app. Companies can also add a link to their WhatsApp chat on their website or pay Facebook to promote the chats in an ad.

Companies can use the WhatsApp chat feature for free, as long as they respond to a customer’s message within 24 hours. Otherwise, the company has to pay a fee to WhatsApp. It charges a fixed rate per country, ranging from about half a cent to 9 cents per message, according to a WhatsApp spokesperson.

Facebook’s move is its latest attempt to monetize the other apps in its portfolio, like WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram. Facebook said last week that 2.5 billion people use its family of apps each month.

During a call with analysts for its second-quarter earnings report, Facebook projected lower revenue growth and operating margin growth.

But it still could have room to grow with its other apps, including WhatsApp. Allowing people to click a Facebook ad to get to a WhatsApp Business chat could encourage more businesses to buy more advertising. Charging for customer service messages may provide an additional revenue stream. The company has also added similar customer service and other ad opportunities on Messenger to attract businesses.

Microsoft challenges Slack with a free tier for Teams

Microsoft announced on Thursday a free version of its Teams app, stepping up competition with chat service Slack.

Until now, Microsoft only provided Teams to clients that pay for Office 365 and its portfolio of subscription productivity apps. Slack has offered both free and premium options since its public launch in 2014.

In promoting a free service, Microsoft may be leaving money on the table in the short term, but the company is betting that it will lure customers who will eventually be drawn to pay for Office as they grow and need more services and professional support. The free tier is limited to 300 users.

Slack isn’t the only competitor in the space. Last year Google introduced a Slack rival called Hangouts Chat as part of its G Suite bundle, less than six months after Microsoft unveiled Teams. Facebook also offers a chat app for work.

With all of those options, an easy and free on ramp has become that much more important.

“We wanted to remove all barriers to entry for all business, individuals and work settings to be able to use it,” said Lori Wright, general manager for Office 365 collaboration apps, in an interview. “I suspect that people will find ways to use the software in all aspects of their lives, whether personal or for work, but our design lens is for work.”

Microsoft doesn’t view the free service as a lightweight version of the paid offering, as is the case with Slack. It’s including availability in more languages and offering increased storage space, messaging search features and more integrations of third-party tools. It will also let users make group video and voice calls, while Slack’s free tier only enables calls between two people at a time.
