You are watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to delete Hangouts from the 'Google Hangouts' application on the iPhone 6.
To get started, press the 'Lock' button on the right-hand side of the phone. Alternatively, press the 'Home' button at the bottom.
Swipe across the screen to enter your passcode. Alternatively, press your finger onto the 'Home' button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner, if the option is enabled. This will bring us to the home screen.
Open the 'Google Hangouts' application by tapping it. It's a green round speech bubble with 2 white quotes in it on a white background. This will take us into the 'Google Hangouts' application.
We are specifically looking for the 'Hangouts' section. Choose a Hangout to delete.
To delete a Hangout, swipe it left or right, then tap on 'Archive', which is the last option.
Once it's archived, tap on 'Archived Hangouts'. The Hangout will be in this folder now. If we swipe it right or left, we won't have the option to delete it.
Tap on the archived Hangout to enter it.
Tap on the 3 white dots in the top right-hand corner. This will open up a menu with 4 options, 'Details', 'Muted', 'Voice' and 'Favorites'.
To delete the Hangout, tap on 'Details'. This will take you into the chat itself.
Now, we can either block the number or tap on 'Delete Hangout' above it. We are going to tap on 'Delete Hangout'.
We will see a confirmation window where we need to press 'Delete'. The confirmation window says, "You will lose this Hangout's message history and other history".
Once it is deleted, we will be taken back to the archived hangouts. We currently have no archived hangouts. Tap on the white arrow in the top left corner to go back. This will bring us back to the main screen.
On the main screen, we can see that the Hangout has successfully been deleted.
This concludes the tutorial on how to delete Hangouts from the 'Google Hangouts' application on the iPhone 6. Thank you for choosing VisiHow. Please let us know of any questions, comments or suggestions in the comment section below.
