How often does it happen that you are so engrossed in chatting with many people at the same time that you end up sending the wrong text to the wrong person? Honestly, if you are reading this article, you have already apologized to a lot of them for messing up. And fed up of all the mess that you have created over time, you are looking for the answer to how to delete messages from Instagram. If that is exactly you, that I just mentioned, welcome to the article that’s going to solve your problem.
Steps for How To Delete Messages From Instagram
With many features that Instagram provides you for updating a post, all the filters, the cropping, the likes and comments and the motivation from them, it also provides you with a feature that magically deletes your messages, yes you read that right! It deletes the messages you’ve already sent without a clue, unlike Whatsapp. Or if you are willing to let go of a conversation that you had with someone and never want to look at it again, Instagram blesses you with that feature too.
Although iOS and Android are two completely different software, the process to delete the messages are quite similar.
For deleting an entire conversation with someone who’s not a big favorite of yours or someone who’s an intimate favorite, the steps are quite simple.
For Android, Delete Messages From Instagram
-Go to the direct section of your Instagram handle, long tap the conversation you want to delete and then click on the delete button when the message box appears. And you’re done! Yes, that was that easy.
For iOS, Delete Messages From Instagram
-Go to the direct section of your Instagram handle, swipe left just like you’d do on uninteresting guys/ girls on tinder and then click on the delete button when the message box appears. Told you, it was easy.
But just in case you gathered all the courage in the world and typed a long text on how you feel about someone and ended up sending it to them or by mistake a short text to a wrong person and are now regretting, honestly let it go! Let people know about your feelings, of course only till that doesn’t create problems between the two of you. But if it’s a major blunder that you made and are looking for a way to wave a wand and undo what you just did, congratulations! You can still do it. For this particular feature whether you are an iOS user or an Android user, the process remains just the same.
-All you need to do is go to the conversation that you want to bring back your words from and tap the particular message that you want to be gone. Tap on unsend, once the message box appears.
Spoken words can’t be taken back but typed texts on Instagram can definitely be. However, you need to be quick enough to erase the proofs of you having said anything before the other one has caught you red-handed.
