How to clear Discord chat messages

You can clear Discord chat messages on a channel in two ways. The first one is manually, and the second one is by using a bot.

Do it manually

To do it manually, open a text channel that has the messages you want to remove and then hover over the message. You will notice an icon with three dots, tap on it, and then select the option Delete. A pop-up will show up, click Delete to confirm the action.

Clearing the chat messages manually is the option to go when there is just one or only a few messages that you want to delete. But if there are thousands of messages on the channel, this option is out of the question.

Use a bot

The second option to clear the messages is by using a bot, and this is a perfect option if you want to delete more messages. You will need to download a bot, and one of the most popular ones for this purpose is MEE6. Here is what you need to do. Go to your Discord server, and then go to the MEE6 page. Click on the button “Add to Discord”.

Next, tap Authorize. This will give the bot permission to work on your server. Choose the server. You will then be asked to give MEE6 bot permission to delete chat messages on the channel. Click Authorize. MEE6 has a control panel where you can adjust everything the way you want, but just make sure to allow the Moderation plugin.
