SNAPCHAT is giving users what they’ve been clamouring after for years, the ultimate messaging feature: the ability to unsend chats.
Yes, you’ll finally be able to take back any unsavoury texts or photos that you drunkenly shared in an individual or group chat conversation (with just a couple of taps) regardless if that message has been saved or viewed.
But be warned, Snapchat will alert users in the thread when you unsend a message, so you may be quizzed about the text in the aftermath of its abrupt disappearance.
And there’s nothing stopping your friends from screenshotting your texts to use as proof of their existence.
Along with texts and pics, you’ll also be able to axe stickers, audio and voice notes, and Memories (images and videos saved to Snapchat’s in-app gallery).
The ability to remove messages in a chat will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks, according to the company – and here’s how you can use it.
How To Delete A Snapchat Message Sent In Chat
Navigate to the conversation that contains the message you want to delete.
Simply press and hold on the message or Chat media (i.e. Stickers, Audio & Voice Notes, Memories) and select “Delete”.
Once the message is deleted, your friends will be alerted in the Chat conversation that a message was deleted.
Note: Don’t forget, your friends can always screenshot your messages.
WhatsApp users will be aware that a similar unsend feature has been available on the Facebook-owned app for yonks.
But its arrival on Snapchat is still awesome as it’s another app that boasts an unbelievable flurry of daily activity, with its 191million users creating 3.5billion snaps every day.
And that’s not all. This is a feature-packed week for Snapchat, which also includes the launch of Friendmoji (the Bitmoji stickers featuring you and your mates’ cartoon avatars) outside of the app for the first time using the iOS Bitmoji Keyboard.
What’s more, the company’s revamped video recording sunglasses (known as Spectacles) will be available on Amazon in the UK starting today for £150.
