The feature is now rolling out to many beta testers on Android with version of the app but some of the users could find the option to undelete older versions as well. Once you have deleted the message for yourself, a floating snackbar notification appears at the bottom confirming you for the deletion. It has also got undo button to help recover deleted message.
