WhatsApp now allows Android users to download deleted media files

Share

We have all been through this.

This means that if you removed any images, GIFs, videos, audio files, audio recordings or even a document from the internal storage of your smartphone, WhatsApp will allow you to re-download them again from its servers. According to WABetaInfo, the Android version of the app lets you re-download deleted media files.

WhatsApp on Android will let users re-download old images and videos that might have been deleted from the user's mobile storage. It was also all-pervasive in nature - showing the unusual timestamps across WhatsApp Status, messages, and calls. But this is not the case now, as the app lets you download deleted media from its servers with the latest update. However, now, WhatsApp will not delete the data from the server and will enable users to download it again if it was deleted accidentally. Gadgets 360 has been able to verify the new feature is now available in the WhatsApp version 2.18.113 on Android.

Full Metal Jacket star R Lee Ermey dies aged 74
Lee Ermey , who portrayed the tough-as-nails "Gunnery Sergeant Hartman" in the movie " Full Metal Jacket ", has died at 74. Kubrick ultimately made a decision to use him in the final film, which earned Ermey a Golden Globe nomination.

The feature is now available for Android users and there is no information whether it will make it way to iOS. WhatsApp released the first beta version 2.18.109 on April 12. It has made a decision to store all the messages and multimedia content on its server even if it is downloaded by the user.

In a related development, WhatsApp is testing a new feature which would allow users to customize the shape and size of the WhatsApp icon on the home screen.

So, you can download a deleted file from the WhatsApp folder with the path sdcard/WhatsApp/ only if you have the message in the chat. For instance, Yesterday became "89ESTERDAY" and Today became "84ODAY".
