Delete a message from a group chat?

Actually I am wondering if there is a way to delete a message from the group chat in Telegram. I mistakenly wrote a message and I want to delete it. I want to delete it from the whole group not only my own device.

By long tapping on the message you can edit it or delete it and then write something else in it's place. It will show a message of updated but do not stress about that.

My challenge actually is on super group history delete. I'm an admin of a group that is over 200 and everyone is complaining that deleting history is impossible. I have deleted one by one but on the members the messages still appear. Any help? I have tried: As an admin I have tried DELETE HISTORY but found it is not there. So I highlighted over 800 messages one by one and deleted. Checking on members the messages still exist

Currently, you can only delete your own messages or users on your personal interface. This will not delete the messages for them though. They will have to do it themselves like you did. You can however select a user in the group and delete messages along with block and report the person. This is the only control option. I suggest you contact Telegram on Twitter and let them know that admins like you want a clear history option for everyone. There are several posts online such as Reddit of super group admins that have expressed your frustration. Perhaps they are working on this feature but it would be nice to know from them. No one wants to sit and manually delete 800 or more messages a day from their supergroups.

If I delete my messages to any of my friend, are the messages restored in my iPhone in some where or deleted forever and they won't be restored again?

Delete icon is better or delete history chat which one is safest, honestly I don't want any body to know what I deleted and want it removed completely and never can be found by any body. Thanks


They can be recovered no matter what you have chosen as your delete option by using iPhone Data functions when connected to iTunes. In the future, if you do not wish something to be seen then do not send it at all. Not to mention that your message could be screen shot by who you are posting to. Always keep that in mind that these days anything in writing either by text messages, email or app messages can be screenshot and posted to the world. Look for example at what has happened to public figures who end up with their private SnapChat posting circulating all over the internet.

Long press and try to delete. This should work for you. Pain to do each message manually though!

How to delete posts from a group in Telegram without leaving that group? I have deleted some of the posts and again they have appeared

Why after deleting some of the posts, and after a while all of them are back?

Both the person that posted and you have to delete a post to keep it permanently deleted. However, there is a glitch where if a new person joins the group, all the deleted posts appear again. It also glitches when someone has not checked Telegram in a few days from within your group.

How can a member do a "clear chat" on a super-group on Telegram?

Hi, We have a super-group with over 800 members on. Some of my members asked me how can they "clear chat" like we use to do on WhatsApp. Please help! The article has no relevant information for me about super-group chat clearing. I have tried: There is no option to try anything, just delete group! I think it was caused by: There is no problem. I just want to ask a simple question.
