WhatsApp for Android allows users Download Deleted Media files

SHARE
WhatsApp is releasing interesting features to its Android platform users where few are bug fixes and other to be upgraded features. 

The messaging app is all set to release
a feature by which users can download deleted media files. Users who have 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 Facebook-owned messaging app enables you to download such files

WABetaInfo report says " WhatsApp 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 WhatsApp's 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 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."

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 has given promise to 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.

WhatsApp beta for Android update (v2.18.111) reportedly added the vCard indexing feature will let the deleted files to down.
