Is there a way to delete multiple messages in a conversation at once?

Hi all,

 

There used to be an option to delete multiple messages at once but that seems to have vanished. I really don't want to have to delete messages one by one & I don't want to delete the whole conversation. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Re: Is there a way to delete multiple messages in a conversation at once?

Hi @Caspermelb!

In the pre-installed Messages application, you can only delete one message at the time, inside a conversation. You can however delete more than one entire conversation if you press and hold on the conversation > tap on a new one > tap the recycle bin to delete them.

If you want to be able to delete several messages in a conversation, I would recommend that you take a look in the Google Play store and see if there are any other messaging applications that can do this!

I hope that answers your question! Slightly smiling Face

@Strampke, that's a good suggestion!

There is also a lot of different messaging application in the Google Play store, although it may take some time to find the perfect one, once you find it, it feels amazing! Slightly smiling Face
