Alternatively, tap “Select All” at the top of the screen to select all of the GIFs in this conversation. Once everything is selected that you want to be deleted, tap “Delete.” A confirmation message will appear asking if you are sure you want to delete these items; tap “Delete Items” to confirm.

If you’re looking to clear your GIF history on Android, there are a few steps you’ll need to follow.
First, open up the Google app on your device and tap on the three lines in the top left-hand corner. From there, select “Settings” and then scroll down to “Accounts & Privacy.”
Under that section, tap on “Manage your activity controls.” On the next page, toggle off the switch next to “Web & App Activity.” This will stop any future GIF searches from being saved to your account.
To delete your existing GIF history, you’ll need to head over to myactivity.google.com and sign into your account. Once you’re signed in, click on the “Other Google activity” option from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
Here, you’ll see a list of all of your recent activities grouped by day.
Find the section labeled “GIFs” and click on the three dots next to it. From here, select “Delete Activity By” and then choose how far back you want to delete your GIF history (you can choose between the last hour, last day, last week, or all time). Keep in mind that this will also delete any other activity under that same category (so if you select “all time,” it will delete all of your web and app activity as well).
