Whatsapp Enables Re-download of Deleted Media on Android Devices

The new feature lets users download deleted media files, WABetaInfo, a fan website that tracks upcoming WhatsApp features has reported.

We have all been through this. WABetaInfo said that the deleted media files range from images, videos, GIFs and even voice messages. If you delete any WhatsApp photo, image or GIF file from your phone, you can not download it again.

WhatsApp on Android will let users re-download old images and videos that might have been deleted from the user's mobile storage. However, WhatsApp seems to be banking on their end-to-end encryption for this particular job.

LeBron James reacts to question about being down 0-1
Cleveland swept Toronto in last year's playoffs, and they defeated the Raptors in two games toward the end of this season. But with lineups changing on an nearly game-by-game basis over the final weeks of the season, it's been a moving target.

Being a beta tester has advantages and disadvantages - you get access to the latest features and updates before anyone else, but you have to suffer through glitches and bugs. However, now, WhatsApp will not delete the data from the server and will enable users to download it again if it was deleted accidentally. While earlier, there was an assumption of privacy in that it was possible that Facebook deleted files after they were downloaded. Currently, this feature is only available for Android users and not for the iOS users. WhatsApp released the first beta version 2.18.109 on April 12.

This was partially available earlier but was meant for the un-downloaded media files for 30 days.

If you're on Android, ensure you're running the latest WhatsApp version 2.18.113. According to the report, the recipient was able to download media from a text sent 2 months ago but there for the messages dating back to nearly a year, the application asks to request the sender to send the file again. This bug was altering the time stamp on WhatsApp messages by replacing the first two alphabets with the ASCI codes. For instance, instead of "Today", messages which are exchanged on that day are appearing with "84oday"; instead of "Yesterday" the timestamp is shown as "89esterday" for messages which are exchanged a day before.
