Snapchat is a social networking site focused on images rather than text. Users can record short videos or click pictures by pressing the Snap button and then can share them with their friends and colleagues — straight from the homepage of the app.

Although Snapchat is an image-based social networking site, you can chat with friends via the text messages also. Snapchat also provides us with the option of deleting the messages and conversations. In this article, we will explain how you can delete messages and conversations in Snapchat.

How to delete Snapchat messages individually?

Here are the steps to delete a conversation in Snapchat.

  • Open Snapchat and then swipe right to open the Friends menu.
  • Tap on the chat column to open the chats. You will see all the friends with which you been chatting here.
  • Now, tap on the particular friend’s name to open the chats.
  • Then long press on the messages that you want to delete. You can select multiple messages here.
  • Tap Delete.

Remember, you can delete the messages only if the internet connection on both sides is good. If not, then the chats on the friend’s end might not get deleted. Also, if your friend is using the older version of Snapchat, then there is a chance that the messages will not be removed from their screen.
