Snapchat’s new update allows you to delete unopened messages

While we were all impressed by WhatsApp’s delete messages options allowing us to delete wrongly sent messages for everyone, the only wait was for Snapchat to introduce the Delete unopened messages option which is now here.

Last night a chat message popped up on every Snapchat users’ mobile screen from Team Snapchat which stated that now you can delete messages which you realize later shouldn’t be sent and are yet unopened. This saves you from many things, right?

To delete the message, press and hold the content (text, photo, audio, etc) you wish to trash off. ‘Delete’ appears after ‘Save in Chat’ and ‘Copy’ options, select it and the message diminishes. The receiver still gets a notification of the message delivery from you but won’t be able to check it as it has been already deleted by you.

After introducing some really cool summer glass filters, this is one of the major updates that the Snapchatters were eagerly awaiting. Get yourself upgraded to the latest version of Snapchat to avail the newest update.
