How to Delete My Chat History on the Facebook Android App

by Nick Flegg

The Facebook Android app enables you to delete messages, chat conversations and comments that you have written. Facebook chat conversations are included along with other messages, texts and emails. You can also use the Facebook mobile Web browser to delete messages, with the added bonus of being able to delete selected messages, rather than your entire conversation history. Bear in mind that any messages you delete will affect only your own account and will still be visible in your friends' inboxes.
