How to Delete Instagram Call History [3 Methods]

Instagram is one of the coolest and best social media apps to use. You can share your photos and videos as stories, reels, and posts. Along with this, Instagram added a call feature where you can make both audio and video calls. Previously, the call logs will display on your chat feeds, and later Instagram added a new section called Calls, in which all your incoming and outgoing call history will appear. It is recommended to delete the Instagram call history regularly to keep your privacy secure and also helps to remove space in the app for better functioning.
