How To Delete Message In Google Meet Chat Box

Hello there! I am excited to show you how to delete messages in the chat box during a Google Meet session. As a frequent user of Google Meet for meetings and collaborative work, I have found this feature to be extremely helpful in organizing my chat history.

First, let me explain why you might want to delete messages in the chat box. Sometimes, during a meeting, we may send a message that contains an error or something we didn’t mean to say. In such cases, it’s great to have the ability to remove that message and ensure clear communication.

To delete a message in the Google Meet chat box, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open the Chat Box

During a Google Meet meeting, you can find the chat box on the right side of the screen. Click on the speech bubble icon to open the chat box.

Step 2: Locate the Message

Once the chat box is open, scroll through the chat history and locate the message you want to delete.

Step 3: Hover Over the Message

Hover your mouse cursor over the message you want to delete. This will reveal a few options.

Step 4: Click on the Three Dots Icon

Next to the message you want to delete, you’ll see three dots in a vertical line. Click on those three dots.

Step 5: Select “Delete”

A small menu will appear with several options. From this menu, select “Delete”.

And voila! The message you selected will be deleted from the Google Meet chat box. It’s as simple as that!

Now, it’s worth mentioning that once a message is deleted, it is removed for all participants in the meeting. So, if you accidentally send a message that you don’t want anyone to see, you can quickly delete it.

However, it’s important to note that there is no way to retrieve deleted messages in Google Meet. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to double-check your message content before sending it.


Deleting messages in the Google Meet chat box is a handy feature that helps maintain clear and accurate communication during virtual meetings. By following the simple steps outlined above, you can easily remove any message that you don’t want to appear in the chat history.

Remember, though, once a message is deleted, it cannot be recovered. So, it’s always wise to review your messages before sending them. Happy deleting!
