WhatsApp for Android gets new feature: All you need to know

WhatsApp has added a new feature allowing its users on Android to re-download media files that they accidentally deleted from their smartphones.

WhatsApp now lets its users re-download media content such as images, videos, voice messages and documents from its servers after the content has been deleted from a user's device.

As of now, this feature has been made available in WhatsApp for Android version (2.18.113) and is expected to come to iOS soon, reported WABetaInfo.

WhatsApp reportedly appears all set to change its "delete for all" feature again. Basically, the WhatsApp servers will store the media files even after downloading them. However, with the new feature, you can simply scroll up the chat conversation and download the required media content again.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp is one of the top messenger apps in the world and in a bid to keep itself at the top of the game, it always tries to improve the user experience.

WABetaInfo points out that undowloaded media is now stored in WhatsApp's server for 30 days. However, with the latest update, WhatsApp will now allow you to restore that deleted image from its server again. WhatsApp beta version 2.18.109 for Android was first released on April 12.

In the meantime, you can also download the APK version via the APK Mirror.

If you're on the latest WhatsApp version (as specified above), you can start using the "WhatsApp Payment" after accepting the WhatsApp's terms and conditions. However, WhatsApp had recently announced that their data and chats are secured with end-to-end encryption and nobody can read messages and listen to calls. It is worth noting that if you delete a media file from your smartphone, you need to have the message where the sender sent you the specific file to be able to download it again. This also means that media messages are being stored on the apps's servers and now for a longer period, even after a user has downloaded them.
