Whatsapp Added New Features Re-download Deleted Images
In a minor update, it seems that WhatsApp has added a brand new feature of re-downloading the deleted media from the WhatsApp folder on the humanoid phone.
WABetaInfo that initially discovered the feature aforementioned that they were able to transfer the deleted media— image, video, GIF, voice message and a document—from the WhatsApp servers even when they were deleted from the phone. The new feature to tweak this has been introduced in WhatsApp's recent updates, between the version a pair of.18.106 and 2.18.110.
The report claims that they were able to transfer media that were quite 3 months recent, albeit with a slight problem. However, with terribly recent media, say August 2017, the feature doesn't work because the message service counsel to raise the sender to send the media file again.
Earlier, a user couldn't transfer the filed if they were deleted from the phone. The un-downloaded media were obtainable for thirty days and at the moment they'd be deleted from the server.
The newly introduced feature means currently on WhatsApp stores our media on their servers even when downloading them.
Though, since the media and texts square measure end-to-end encrypted, though the info is held on on the server, it cannot be scan by anyone.
The feature doesn’t appear to be obtainable for iOS users, in all probability as a result of the directory wherever WhatsApp saves media isn’t simply accessible, therefore this drawback doesn't occur for them, as per the report.
