    I think it’s less than an hour before you can’t edit your message because it’s only been 45 minutes and I can’t edit mine.

      There is no option for Skype to delete message please kept the delete option. Must of the app have delete option but skype does not.
      I am recently using windows 7 enterprise N with skype desktop app.
      please let me know why this option is removed.

    Am puzzled that although I can’t edit messages sent three weeks ago, I can remove them. Can anyone enlighten please? Youtube clip claims if able to remove earlier messages, it indicates a contact has blocked you. Thanks.

    Doesn’t WORK!

    I found that you can only remove messages that have not been translated. Once your message has been translated, via Skype Translator, you can only remove the untranslated message and not the translated message. So you’re stuck with a message on there that was translated and the person you’re talking to, can still read the original message.
