It so happens that you send an instant message while chatting with someone and suddenly realized that the message was not actually meant for him/her. Depending on your relationship with the person, you can probably just use a simple excuse, which may even be the truth. It works with your friends, family, in other words, people close to you. And what about others: partners, clients, colleagues or even boss? For most of them your already sent message – is a delivered evidence of your words. In this case the only way to change the situation is to modify your sent messages.
It’s well known that Skype offers a feature known as “edit chats” using which you can modify, delete, edit or recall the instant messages that you have already sent to the recipient during a chat conversation.
Anyway, this Skype feature has some limitations. You will be allowed to edit or remove recently sent messages but only which are not older than 1 hour.
