WhatsApp's new feature allows users to download deleted media from chat

Whatsapp's Request Money Using UPI from contacts feature showing up for some users!

WhatsApp beta version 2.18.109 listed the last time users were online with the timestamps - "89ESTERDAY" and "84ODAY". Now, the messaging app has introduced a new feature that lets users download deleted media files. Once identified, WhatsApp will trigger the UPI payment feature and the user can just type in the payment amount and complete the transaction.

WhatsApp is testing a new feature on its beta app for Android that lets users re-download deleted media including photos and videos. Gadgets 360 has been able to verify the new feature is now available in the WhatsApp version 2.18.113 on Android.

As WhatsApp servers are claimed to be secure and encrypted, it is unlikely that anyone else can access that data. WhatsApp released the first beta version 2.18.109 on April 12.

The new "Change Number" feature update is now available in the 2.18.97 Android beta update on Google Play Store.

Recently, WhatsApp has modified this behavior: "when a media is successfully downloaded, WhatsApp doesn't delete it from the server, allowing the users to download it again if the file was accidentally deleted in the path where WhatsApp saves media", said WABetaInfo. As per recent leaks, Whatsapp latest beta version (2.18.113) on Android is packed with the new feature where the user can Request Money from contacts and UPI addresses. However, the feature only works for content that has been received in the past few months provided the user has only deleted the file and not the chat in the app.

WhatsApp previously stored "undownloaded" media content on its servers for 30 days and deleted it as soon as the user viewed it on their device. The bug was changing the first alphabets of the timestamps with ASCII codes. The bug wasn't limiting the chat experience but was annoyingly replacing timestamps carrying "Today" and "Yesterday" with ASCII codes.

To be clear, only those messages that are still in your chat log will be downloadable again.
