Snapchat is rolling out a new feature which will let users delete messages in chats. This feature is called "clear chat" and will be available for one-to-one conversations and group chats as well. This applies to all content sent on chats including text, photo, video, sticker and more.

Snapchat, as an app is already big on keeping chats discreet as they disappear after they're read by the recipient. With the new feature, Snapchat is giving users another option by letting them delete messages before they are read.
