WhatsApp now lets you redownload old photos after you've deleted them

This feature is part of the latest WhatsApp version 2.18.113.

If the user has deleted the downloaded media content in the phone's storage, he/she can go back to the chat conversation on WhatsApp.

According to a report by WAbetainfo, a new minor WhatsApp feature has been silently added to updates between 2.18.106 and 2.18.110.

Amid all the crisis of data protection across the globe, WhatsApp has launched another feature that increases the brand's liability to store personal user data more securely.

As per a WABetaInfo report, WhatsApp now allows users to download deleted media, such as images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, and documents, from its servers again.

Downloaded media shared on WhatsApp is saved in a separate folder on your phone. Rolling out the "WhatsApp Payment" feature will prove to be a game changer for Facebook owned messaging app.

However, he returned to the starting lineup after midweek's assault on Manchester City in the Uefa Champions League . He added: "It's also very close, it's just seven goals".

Being a beta tester has advantages and disadvantages - you get access to the latest features and updates before anyone else, but you have to suffer through glitches and bugs. Earlier, WhatsApp stored "undownloaded' media files for 30 days and when a user downloaded them, the app used to delete it from the server".

You can tap on request money and enter the amount and tap on send request. However, as per some sources, Whatsapp is now not allowing media files that are too old to be downloaded again.

It is worth noting that if you delete a media file from the folder in your smartphone, you need to have the message where the sender sent you the specific file, in order to be able to download it again.

WhatsApp beta version 2.18.109 listed the last time users were online with the timestamps - "89ESTERDAY" and "84ODAY".

WhatsApp also posted a new FAQ (frequently asked questions) to clarify the use of end-to-end encryption for messages sent to a business via WhatsApp. It has chose to store all the messages and multimedia content on its server even if it is downloaded by the user.
