I wanted to recall a photo, that I sent to someone by accident. They are out of town, so I know they haven't seen it yet. Is there any way to delete the picture on hangouts so they can't see it?
You can delete photos that you sent through a Hangouts message or through a Google Voice multimedia message in Hangouts. You'll need to delete the photos from Picasa Web Albums.
Even if you delete a photo in your Picasa album, if you sent it through a multimedia message, the person who received it may still have a copy of the image on their device.
- Go to Picasa Web Albums.
- Click Show All Albums. If you're using Hangouts to send Google Voice multimedia messages, make sure you're going to the Picasa account that is connected to the Google Voice account.
- Click the album with the photos you want to delete. For Hangouts users: The photo album's title will be the name of the person you had the Hangout with. For Google Voice users: The photo album's title will be the phone number of the person who received the photo.
- Click the photo that you want to delete.
- Click Actions > Delete this photo. If you want to delete the entire album, open the album and click Actions > Delete album.
