WhatsApp Will Now Let You To Recover And Download Deleted Media

WhatsApp has recently introduced another feature that will let users retrieve data that has been deleted months before re-downloading it, according to a report published by WAbetainfo.

Earlier, the company would let the recipient of the media file download it within a period of 30 days, after which it was deleted from the server and hence couldn't be recovered unless the sender resends it.

But, WhatsApp has modified this behaviour, now allowing users to download the deleted file or media even after 2 months. WhatsApp won't be deleting those files from its server and will be saving the media for a much longer period of time.

The company has rolled out this new upgrade for Android so far and is expected to extend it to iOS soon.

The company also released a fix for the timestamp issue with the beta users. The update 2.18.109 brings a fix to a 'day' bug. This bug was altering the time stamp on WhatsApp messages by replacing the first two alphabets with the ASCI codes. For instance, Yesterday became "89ESTERDAY" and Today became "84ODAY".
