How to delete messages

Web i stolno računalo
You can delete messages just for yourself or request that messages be deleted for everyone.
Delete messages for everyone
Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you've sent to an individual or group chat. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or the message you sent contains a mistake. As a group admin, you are also empowered to remove errant or problematic messages sent by other members from the chat.
Messages you've sent that are successfully deleted for everyone will be replaced with:
This message was deleted
To delete a message you've sent for everyone:
  1. In an individual or group chat, select the message you wish to delete.
  2. Press Options > Delete > Delete for everyone.
If you are an admin of a group, you can delete messages sent by another group member. This enables admins to manage their private groups and communities by deleting inappropriate or abusive messages or media for all members. When an admin successfully deletes a message for everyone, it will be replaced with:
"This message was deleted by admin [admin name]"
To delete a message sent by another group member:
  1. Open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you want to delete.
  2. Select the message you wish to delete, then press Delete > Delete for Everyone > OK.
  • In order for messages to be successfully deleted for everyone, you and the recipients must be using the latest version of WhatsApp.
  • Recipients using WhatsApp for iOS may still have media you sent saved to their Photos, even after the message is deleted from the WhatsApp chat.
  • Recipients might see your message before it's deleted or if deletion wasn’t successful.
  • You won’t be notified if deleting for everyone wasn’t successful.
  • You only have about an hour after you've sent a message to Delete for Everyone.
  • Deleting multiple messages at once isn't supported on KaiOS.
  • Group admins have about two days after someone else sends a message to request to Delete for Everyone.
Delete messages for yourself
You can delete your copy of messages you've sent or received from your phone. This has no impact on your recipients' chats. Your recipients will still see the messages in their chat screen.
To delete messages for yourself:
  1. In an individual or group chat, select the message you want to delete.
  2. Press Options > Delete > Delete for me.
