Messaging groups are something that keeps on changing, and if you want to delete a group owned by you on Whatsapp, we’ve got your back. Here we will guide you to a Whatsapp Group. 

What happens when you delete your Whatsapp group?

As soon as you delete a group, you’ll no longer see the group in your chats list and the chat history will be erased from your phone permanently. Other participants will still see the group in their chat list. However, no one will be able to send messages.

In case you want to recover your deleted WhatsApp Groups, you can do so if they are in the most recent local backup. If not it’s really hard to retrieve. Nevertheless, you can try a data recovery for an android tool to scan and restore your WhatsApp messages pictures, and other data.
