  • A yellow text bubble will appear in the chat if the account is verified.
  • In general, users are able to delete the messages and chats from a regular conversation, but conversation through verified account cannot be deleted.
  • Providing this special feature is an effort to make businesses appear more trustworthy on the messaging app.
  • This feature will encourage more businesses to get on the platform and play safe.
