Snapchat is a multimedia messaging service used by people all across the globe. Recently the company released a new feature that let you delete Snapchat messages which you have sent to other users.

Earlier, the messages sent by you to your friends remain inside the message log until both of the users have viewed the chat or if the message not opened by the receiver for one month (30 days). While in the Snapchat group chat, the messages are deleted automatically after one day (24 hours).
