The unsend feature can be used with both the mobile and desktop versions of LINE.

Note: On the Google Chrome version of LINE, while you'll receive notifications for messages your friends unsend, unsending your own messages is currently not supported. If you wish to unsend a particular message, please use LINE on a different device.

Messages can be unsent regardless if they have been read or not.
Feel free to use this unsend feature to undo any LINE messages you wish to take back.

(Please note that you cannot use the unsend feature to remove notifications from your friends' devices.)
