How to delete messages in WhatsApp

Anyone who uses WhatsApp knows that there are times when the chat can look completely chaotic, especially when it comes to group conversations.

The good news is that WhatsApp allows you to delete sent messages in order to better organize your chat window. Here’s a step-by-step guide for deleting messages on WhatsApp for iPhone (the process is virtually the same for WhatsApp on Android). But remember: this function only deletes the messages that are on your device. Here’s how:

1. In WhatsApp, open the conversation and select the message you want to delete.

2. Tap and hold the message for a moment: it will be highlighted in blue. One of the options that comes up will be to delete the message.

3. Hit ‘delete’ and the message will disappear, but be careful: there is no additional confirmation asking whether you want to delete the message or not, so be certain that it’s the message you want to delete.

And it’s done! Now any stray messages will be gone and your chat can be much better organized. If you have any questions, leave a comment below.
