WhatsApp New Feature: Restored Deleted Messages By Mistake

WhatsApp is finally preparing one of the most awaited functions: you will be able to recover messages that you have deleted in a chat. 

you have ever regretted deleting a message you had sent on WhatsApp, I am very afraid that the new function that is about to arrive in the messaging application is going to fix your day. as they have discovered in WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is going to introduce the option to recover deleted messages as long as a short time has passed since the message was deleted. You will finally be able to recover WhatsApp messages that you have deleted by mistake.

The “undo” button will allow you to recover deleted messages

From what we have been able to find out, the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android –version– already hides the function of recovering deleted messages. For now, it is not available to users and must be enabled by modifying the app code. However, everything seems to indicate that its arrival is very close. Once available, the option will appear when deleting a message.

A prompt at the bottom of the screen — a type of prompt known in the Android development world as a “Snackbar” — will display a undo button, which will allow you to recover the message. The warning will last a few seconds, so you will have to be quick if you want to recover the message and prevent it from disappearing forever.

Also, it must be taken into account that this feature will only be available for messages that are deleted for us only. In case of deleting a message for all chat members, there will be no way to recover it…unless you resort to other methods to recover deleted messages. The feature is still under development and should arrive in the app with a future update. For this reason, it is recommended to keep WhatsApp updated to the latest version available, so as not to miss this or any of the other new features that are on their way to the application.
