When can you delete a Snapchat message?

You can only delete a Snapchat message if it is not yet displayed. Until then, Snapchat Says Here’s about deleting sent messages:

When you delete a message, we will try to remove it from our servers and your friends’ devices. This may not always work, like if someone has a bad internet connection, or if you and your friends are running an old version of Snapchat.

So once someone sees the message, you can’t delete it anymore. You also cannot delete messages that the other person has saved.

Additionally, when you delete a message, Snapchat adds a note to the chat saying the message has been removed. It does not reveal the actual message, but the recipient knows that a message has been deleted from the chat.
