New Snapchat update lets you delete messages you didn't intend to send

Snapchat now lets you clear chats to save face

While the app is slowly recovering from the hit, they've been introducing a host of new features in recent weeks in an attempt to win back even more users.

When a message is deleted, other users in the same chat will be notified that a message was deleted. This will delete the content from the apps of everyone in the chat.

However it's worth bearing in mind that friends can always screenshot the chat messages, although Snapchat will notify users when a screenshot has been taken.


Once the update has rolled-out, you will be able to long-press on any message, whether it's a text, image, video, sticker or voice note, and get the option to delete it.

As things stand, users can currently clear conversations from their own side, but if you send a message by mistake or send something that you regret, you can now elect to remove it for everyone in the conversation.

Snap has also announced that its second-generation Spectacles are now available on Amazon. They are even eligible for next-day shipping, just in case you need them stat.
