You cannot delete or edit any chat message sent, even if it has NOT been delivered yet after 1 hour from the time the chat message was created, the only exception to this is if the message is for/sent to/trying to be sent to a multi-chat ("A chat that has more than 2 people in it") and you are the creator of that multi-chat.

Re: delete sent message

no it was one on one.it was not a group chat.

i had jst clicked the wrong person.

i deleted my conversation history does that mean all the messages that i had sent that person will be gone from there screen too.

Re: delete sent message

Sadly, nothing can be done in this case, because the 1 hour time from when the chat message was created has expired, and even if it is not sent yet, because of that the chat message can no longer be deleted or edited.

Re: delete sent message

Hey,

 

I was wondering the same thing and I've seen so many replies that there's a one-hour time limit. But I just right-clicked several that were from earlier in the day, clicked remove, and now I see a message that says they've been removed...is this for real, or should I still be worried about this one-hour time limit?

My friend and I just had the same issue, we were typing really personal things and we didn't realize that her friend was still in the chat. Luckily he wasn't actually at his computer but I deleted the messages and asked her to look and she said that they all said 'Message has been removed' so hopefully they stay that way

Sent video messages cannot be deleted. They are saved on a dedicated server.
