Mistakenly sent someone an unsolicited message and would like to un-send or delete it without the receiver’s notice, then this guide is for you.

With this method of Instagram; the receiver Won’t know you even sent a message talk more of deleting(the message would be deleted for everyone). 
Contrary to WhatsApp and Facebook which always show a “this message was deleted message” whenever a message gets deleted from a chat. 

Nevertheless, They would still get a notification that you sent a message, but when it’s unsent, the notification text would change to ‘This message has been unsent’. 
Although note that the message can still be reported if it goes against Instagram guidelines.
