Have you ever found yourself in the situation of sending the wrong message to the wrong recipient or group? It can be quite embarrassing and uncomfortable. Thankfully, YoWhatsApp offers a feature that allows you to delete messages, either for yourself or for everyone. So, if you’ve mistakenly sent a message and wish to rectify it, here’s how you can delete it on YoWhatsApp.
If you’ve sent a message that you want to delete for everyone on YoWhatsApp, follow these simple steps:
- Open the chat page containing the message you want to delete.
- Press and hold the message until a menu appears at the top of the page.
- Select the “Delete” option. (You can also select multiple messages to delete multiple messages at once.)
- After selecting “Delete,” three options will appear: “Delete For Me,” “Cancel,” and “Delete For Everyone.” Tap on the “Delete For Everyone” option.
- The message will be deleted, and it will be replaced with the notification “You deleted this message.”
As the admin of a YoWhatsApp group, you have the ability to delete any erroneous or faulty messages, regardless of who sent them. This helps maintain a regulated communication environment within the group, preventing inappropriate or illegal messages from disrupting others. When the admin deletes a message, it will be replaced with the notification “This message was deleted by admin.”
Here are the steps to delete messages as an admin:
- Open the chat page of the group and select the message you want to delete.
- Press and hold the message.
- Select the “Delete” option.
- Choose “Delete for everyone.”
- Tap “OK” to confirm the deletion.
- It’s important to note that this action does not guarantee complete deletion of the information. If the recipient has already seen the message before it was deleted, it’s possible that the media message you sent has been saved to their local album.
- You have a window of two days to delete messages for everyone after sending them.
- Once messages are deleted by the admin, they cannot be recovered.
By following these steps, you can effectively manage the content of your YoWhatsApp group as an admin and maintain a more controlled and appropriate messaging environment.
