Snapchat is a very cool and chic instant messaging app that lets users share pictures, videos, and texts that are meant to disappear after they’re viewed. If you have something important to tell a bunch of people, you can create a group adding all those you want to text.
So, instead of having to send the same message to every user, you can send it in the group so that everyone receives the message. It only takes a few minutes to complete setting up the Snapchat group.
When the feature started initially, it allowed only 16 people to join the group, but later on, Snapchat increased the limit to 32 people. Now, you can add up to 32 people to the group.
Like other features of Snapchat, the group conversation of this platform is also a bit different from the Whatsapp group. The group messages last for only 24 hours and disappear automatically.
So, the group chat you have started will last for a day before dissolving. This also means that messages that are left unread will also disappear automatically. In simple words, none of the messages in the group lasts after 24 hours of sending in the group.
We have all been in a situation where we are confronted by unwanted members in a group chat. At times, it’s our nagging aunt who keeps on pestering us about our whereabouts, and sometimes it’s our over-enthusiastic uncle who keeps on spamming our messages with unsolicited greetings (every day) and homemade remedies for almost everything under the sun!
While some portals do give you the leverage of filtering people in a group chat, I am afraid to tell you that all social media platforms don’t do that.
Now the big question arises, can we remove someone from a Snapchat group chat?
Snapchat doesn’t really have an option for removing someone from the group. So, whether you are an admin or someone added by the admin, there is no direct option for removing someone directly from Snapchat.
But, there are a few tricks you can try to have the person removed from the group chat.
In this post, iStaunch will show you a complete guide on how to remove someone from a Snapchat group.
Sound’s good? Let’s get started.
How to Remove Someone from Snapchat Group
1. Just Ask
Now, it might seem impolite but the best option is to directly ask the person to leave the group. You can ask the person politely and tell him that he/she had been added by mistake. If you are lucky, that person might just understand and leave the group after all. If not, then we suggest you to continue reading the next options. Once the person in question decides to leave the group upon your (insistence) then all the snaps etc. they sent will also be deleted.
2. Ignore: Its Only Temporary
Like everything else on snap chat, even the group chats can be kept alive for 24 hours. It means that the group will automatically delete everything in it after 24 hours. Apart from that each snap can viewed and replied to just once by the members. So, if this options works for you, you can simply bear with it for 24 hours.
3. Form a new group
Another thing that you can do, is start another group chat but this time make sure that you do not add the person in question. The previous group can stay inactive and eventually everything will disappear after 25 hours.
Well, this might sound and look very rude but you can actually block the person. In this case, the person will be deleted from your friend list also but then, you can always add them back in the future if at all it’s an option.
If the user who wish for to leave the group, is sending vulgar or abusive messages then it’s best to block them. But if not, then continue reading to explore what more can be done.
5. Leave the Chat
If asking someone else to leave is not an option then you can always decide to leave the group chat. If someone’s presence in the group is really bugging you then we suggest that you should leave the group yourself to buy peace. After all, nothing is more important than your peace of mind right.
