Now, WhatsApp does not seem to delete the data from the server so that users can download it again.

WhatsApp allows any Android smartphone owners to road-test the beta version of its hugely-successful chat app.

If you're among the users who were annoyed by the faulty timestamps, you can download the latest WhatsApp beta version on your device by visiting Google Play.

So, you can download a deleted file from the WhatsApp folder with the path sdcard/WhatsApp/ only if you have the message in the chat. Earlier, WhatsApp allowed users to download files for 30 days, but the data would disappear once the file was downloaded by the recipient. This bug was affecting Android users using the app on the Platform.

As of now, a handful of users have noticed the new feature and using the same, they are able to make and receive payments from their family and friends. However, it is important that we do not delete the message from WhatsApp otherwise it will be impossible to get it back.

If you have deleted the downloaded media content from the phone's storage, you can go back to the chat conversation on WhatsApp. This feature is not available for iOS users because it is unlikely that users will delete anything from the internal file directory without access. Now, users can redownload the lost media like pictures, videos, voice messages, documents etc. Users can update the messenger app to Whatsapp version 2.18.113, the new feature has been released between the WhatsApp version 2.18.106 to 2.18110. The WhatsApp team pushed the update to fix the problem, as soon as the bug was reported online. It took several trials to download the files deleted 3 months ago.

With the new feature, WhatsApp has essentially extended the amount of time it stores the data on its servers. As WABetaInfo reports, with the introduction of the new feature, it is possible for users to retrieve old media content again even if it has been deleted from their phone.
