WhatsApp beta version 2.18.109 for Android was first released on April 12. We receive hundreds of texts and media files in a day and at times while deleting the unwanted files we end up deleting something that was important to us. Previously, when you received an image, GIF, video, document or voice message sent on WhatsApp and deleted the file in the WhatsApp folder, then users couldn't download it again, reported Gizbot. Due to a mysterious bug, the timestamp on the chat window of users is appearing with numbers. Earlier, the company would let the recipient of the media file to download it within a period of 30 days, after which it was deleted from the company's server and hence couldn't be recovered unless the sender releases it again.

The report further states that the version between the 2.18.106 and 2.18.110 updates has got the new feature, which will let you download deleted media from the servers.

To be clear, only those messages that are still in your chat log will be downloadable again. Otherwise, it will not be possible to redownload it.

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.

Last month Whatsapp launched UPI - enabled payments to feature to its users in India. During the testing of the feature, WABetaInfo discovered that they were able to recover the deleted files of up to two months.

"Interestingly, the new WhatsApp feature also means that the app stores users" media on its servers even after the files have been downloaded, the report said. When it comes to very old media files, it claims that they were not able to download images sent in August 2017 as the app asked them to request the sender to send the files again. The report also adds that even though the files are saved on the server they still come with end-to-end encryption.
