    We currently have two groups, but unfortunately Facebook hasn't created an option to delete groups from the "Groups" screen
    .
    In order to delete a group, we have to go to our "Recent" chats.

    As soon as we tap on the "Delete" square, a confirmation message will appear, which is asking if we are sure we want to delete this conversation
    .
    The message let's us know that, "This will permanently delete the conversation history." We have a choice to "Delete Conversation" or "Archive Conversation". If we archive it, we will not see the chat, but it will be saved. Then we can come back to it later if desired.

Questions and Answers

Hello, I would like to know how to delete a group I created by mistake in the messenger?

How to delete a messenger group?

I've been trying to find an answer that works for me. How can I delete a whole group from Messenger?

I still do not see How can I delete a Messenger group. It does not let me delete all members, which still wouldn't make the whole group go away anyway. I see how can I delete the group conversation string but that doesn't take care of deleting the group itself with all the different solutions I have tried. Maybe one can't actually delete a whole messenger group but if that is so, it would be nice to see that in writing.
