How to delete Telegram messages?

While any instant messenger, including those on social networks, allow users to delete their chats, the recipients still have access to them even after they’re removed by the sender. Unlike other social media platforms, Telegram allows deleting the chats for the recipient too even if they’ve read the chats.

Here we will guide you through how to delete single or multiple messages and how to delete the whole chat from the chat list or the chat window.
