This new feature will let users retrieve data that has been deleted months before re-downloading it.

WhatsApp will be saving these media files in their servers for a much longer time. According to WABetaInfo, the Android version of the app lets you re-download deleted media files. However, it is important to note if you have deleted the message, then there is no way to download the data.

WhatsApp has added an interesting new feature in version 2.18.113 of its app for Android, allowing anyone to redownload an image, GIF, document, or voice message which they deleted from their phone.

The company has rolled out this new upgrade for Android so far but it is expected to be launched for iOS soon. The new feature is now limited to Android version 2.18.113 and is expected to be rolled out to iOS users as well. Moreover, Whatsapp fixed a timestamp issue found in the beta version 2.18.109.
