Clearing conversation history

It is possible to clear the conversation history in a conversation with another user. Click the options button (three dots) in the top right corner of the conversation and select Clear history

It is not possible to clear the history of channels and group conversations. This will only be cleared for the user clearing the conversation history. The other user will still be able to see the conversation unless they also clear the conversation history. 

Note: Only administrators can delete messages sent by other users.
