WhatsApp Photos, Videos Deleted Accidentally? Download Them Again – WhatsApp Feature

Facebook Owned messaging application WhatsApp added some latest features and bug fixes. The messaging app WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that lets users download deleted media files. Previously, when users deleted specific files sent over WhatsApp by going to the specific folder on the smartphone, they were not able to download it anymore. But now WhatsApp enables you to download such files as well. Separately, a WhatsApp beta for Android update (v2.18.111) reportedly added the vCard indexing feature.

So the question is, How to download the deleted Media from WhatsApp? Whether it is photos, videos, GIF, Voice message or a document, from WhatsApp’s Server again.

The report said that the feature was introduced in recent updates between version 2.18.106 and 2.18.110. We have been able to verify the new feature is currently available in the WhatsApp version 2.18.113 on Android. However, the app does not seem to let us download media files that are too old, instead, asking us to send a request to the sender to send the media again.

 

 

the new WhatsApp feature also means that the app stores users’ media on its servers even after the files have been downloaded, the report said. Earlier, WhatsApp stores downloaded’ media files for 30 days and when a user downloads them, the app used to delete it from the server. However, now, WhatsApp does not seem to delete the data from the server and that enables users to download it again if it was accidentally deleted. 

WhatsApp had recently informed its users that their data and communications are secured with end-to-end encryption and nobody in between can read messages and listen to calls – not even WhatsApp itself.
