Do you format your memory? Are you feeling bad about whatsapp files you losf? Dont be anymore as whatsapp now enables users to download deleted 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 any more. But now the Whatsapp messaging app enables you to download such files as well.
WhatsApp now allows users to download deleted media, such as images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, and documents, from its servers again.
The feature was introduced in WhatsApp’s recent updates between version 2.18.106 and 2.18.110. We have confirmed the feature is currently available in the WhatsApp version 2.18.113 on Android. Some disappointment in the new feature is that it doesn’t download media files that are too old, instead it will ask you to send a request to the sender to send the media again.
Before the new feature was unveiled, 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.
To re-download your delected file, first of all note down who or where the file was sent (you can make use of star message feature). Now move to your specific folder where you downloaded the file and delete it. Return to the same file in your whatsapp and you will see the download sign again.
What do you have to say about this added feature?
