WhatsApp to soon let you re-download deleted images, videos

Whatsapp request payment

WhatsApp beta version 2.18.109 listed the last time users were online with the timestamps - "89ESTERDAY" and "84ODAY".

This was partially available earlier but was meant for the un-downloaded media files for 30 days. 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. Basically, the WhatsApp servers will store the media files even after downloading them.

Whatsapp has introduced some new features to its Android version with the latest update. Due to a mysterious bug, the timestamp on the chat window of users is appearing with numbers. Now it has introduced a new feature that will enable users to download deleted media on their Android devices again. However, it is important that we do not delete the message from WhatsApp otherwise it will be impossible to get it back. The chat app now does not delete the files from its servers even after it is downloaded and this allows user to recover it even if it has been deleted.


The feature is now available for Android users and there is no information whether it will make it way to iOS. It has made a decision to store all the messages and multimedia content on its server even if it is downloaded by the user. According to WABetaInfo, the Android version of the app lets you re-download deleted media files. The report also adds that even though the files are saved on the server they still come with end-to-end encryption.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp is one of the top messenger apps in the world and in a bid to keep itself at the top of the game, it always tries to improve the user experience. When it comes to very old media files, it claims that they were not able to download images sent in August 2017 as the app asked them to request the sender to send the files again.
