WhatsApp for Android Now Lets Users Download Deleted Media

WhatsApp for Android has added some new features and bug fixes in its latest updates. Earlier, it fixed a timestamp issue found in the beta version 2.18.109. Now, the messaging app 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 the Facebook-owned messaging app enables you to download such files as well. Separately, a beta for Android update (v2.18.111) reportedly added the vCard indexing feature.

According to the report, it now allows users to download deleted media, such as images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, and documents, from its servers again. The report said that the feature was introduced in app recent updates between version 2.18.106 and 2.18.110. Gadgets 360 has been able to verify the new feature is currently available in the 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.

Interestingly, 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 stored ‘undownloaded’ media files for 30 days and when a user downloaded 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.
