Have you sent something by accident in your Instagram DM and now you want to delete it on both sides?
If yes, you are in the right place.
Instagram has an interesting feature that lets you delete the sent messages.
So, in this article, I will be guiding how you can delete a message on both sides.
How to Delete Instagram Messages from Both Sides
Step 1: Open your Instagram chat
Step 2: Tap & Hold the message that you want to delete
Step 3: Click on Unsend tab that pops up from the bottom
The message will be deleted on both sides. You and the recipient will no longer be able to see the message in the chat again.
If you want to delete multiple messages, you need to repeat the process again. There is no option to select the messages all at a time. So, you can’t delete the messages from both sides all at once.
Note that you can only delete your own messages in the chat. You cannot delete the messages received from the other side.
To delete all the messages you need to clear the whole chat. But remember that deleting the chat will not delete the messages on the other side. The one whom you have sent the messages will still be able to see all the conversation. So, deleting the chat will only delete on your end only.
Here’s how to delete the chat:
- Once you are on the Instagram Chat section, tap and hold the chat that you want to delete.
- Click on Delete
All the conversations will be cleared and you won’t be able to see the user in the chat section again.
You can start a new conversation if you wish to chat later.
