The internal messaging of the social network allows its users to cancel sending a message in a conversation.
If you frequently use Instagram’s built-in direct messaging, you may have pressed the send button a little too quickly when your message was full of errors. Don’t panic, it is possible to retrieve a message that has already been sent, before your correspondent reads it.
Open Instagram on your smartphone and go to the dedicated mailbox. Enter the conversation in which you want to delete an erroneous message and make a long press on the message to be deleted. In the tooltip that appears, press Remove.
Confirm the deletion of the message by pressing Remove in the pop-up window that appears. The message will then be deleted on your side, but also on the recipient’s side. Repeat the operation for all the messages you wish to delete in your conversations.
