To remove the last element of any array we can use the pop() method in javascript.

The pop() method removes the last element from an array and returns it back.

var arr = [10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60];
arr.pop(); // returns 60
console.log( arr ); // [10, 20, 30, 40, 50]

Remove without returning the value

This is a trick we can use to remove the last element by decreasing the length of the array. This is a javascript feature that allows us to do such operation.

var arr = [10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60];
arr.length = arr.length - 1;
console.log( arr ); // [10, 20, 30, 40, 50]
