Facebook to introduce Snapchat like ephemeral messages to its Messenger app

Thanks to iOSAppChanges, it appears that Facebook is about to take a page out of Snapchat's playbook by introducing ephemeral messages (timed messages that disappear after a set time) to its Messenger app. 

The screenshots below from iOSAppChanges shows the ephemeral messaging feature at work in the Facebook Messenger app version

With this feature, Facebook Messenger would be joining the likes of Snapchat,  BlackBerry Messenger and Telegram would have already implemented this feature.
