Snapchat automatically deletes all messages from the chat once it’s seen by the recipient unless the message is saved in chat, but what if you want to delete a message you sent before it’s seen at the other end of the chat.

In this article, HowToDelte guides you through the steps of deleting a message before it’s seen by the receiver. You have to be quick for this procedure because we don’t know when your message is going to be seen.

Steps to Manually Delete Snapchat Messages

  3. Select your target conversation.
  4. Tap and hold on the message you want to delete.
  5. Now, select Delete from the popup menu.
  6. Another popup will appear, tap on Delete Chat.

Snapchat informs you that they will attempt to remove it from their servers and your friends’ devices, but it might not work if the receiver has a bad internet connection or if someone is running on an older version of Snapchat.
