Telegram has become a go-to platform for a surprisingly wide variety of applications. Though most users still use the app for messaging, the possibilities of uses with Telegram seem nearly endless. In an era when most online platforms are finding ways to extract more money from users by asking them to pay for availing their services, Telegram is like that rare friend in our circle who knows a way to get things done differently.
Telegram has become pretty much like a mini-internet that can let you do things far beyond the capabilities of a normal messaging app.
While the possibilities with Telegram are far-reaching, we, in this blog, are going to discuss a feature that concerns a far more common and basic functionality of the platform: messages.
If you have just begun using Telegram, it is normal for you to feel a bit lost in the maze of so many features of the app. One of the issues most beginners experience while using the app is that of deleting multiple messages.
This blog is for you if you need to know how to delete multiple messages on Telegram. Read on as we explain this and some other interesting tips from Telegram.
How to Delete Multiple Messages on Telegram
If you only want to delete multiple messages from the same chat on Telegram, that’s no trouble at all. It is one of the easiest things you can do on Telegram. Let’s jump right into it.
You can delete both your and the other user’s messages for one-to-one conversations. In other words, if you are chatting with a single person on Telegram, you can delete any messages you want– not only for you but also for them.
Step 1: To delete a message on a one-to-one chat, open the chat and tap and hold the selected message for a few moments until a few icons appear on the top.
Step 2: To select more messages, just tap on all the messages you want to delete.
Step 3: Then tap on the Dustbin icon at the top-right corner.
Step 4: As the Delete message pop-up appears on the screen, check the box next to Also delete for [name] to delete the messages on the other end.
Step 5: Tap on Delete to confirm.
NOTE: If you are the owner or an admin of a group chat on Telegram, you can delete anyone’s message for everyone in the group. However, if you are just a group member, you can only delete your messages for everyone.
