How To Delete People From Messenger On Android

In the digital age, it’s not uncommon to connect with friends on social media and other online platforms. Through these avenues, you can keep up with their latest activities, check out their photos, and even send them messages if you want. However, this can become tricky if you don’t want someone to have your personal information. If they are no longer your friend or they have done something that has made you uncomfortable, it might be time to delete them from Messenger. Here’s how to do just that: There are a lot of social media apps out there and most of them offer ways for people to message each other. The Google ecosystem is no exception, which is why Messenger is available as part of Google Apps on Android devices by default. Even though Facebook owns Instagram and WhatsApp as well as many other services, having all of those apps preinstalled on Android devices isn’t a bad thing because it lets users connect in different ways and also gives users more options when it comes to deleting friends from their Messenger app.

This menu will let you perform a few different actions like Import Contacts, Send Feedback, or Block a Contact.
