WhatsApp on Android will let users re-download old images and videos that might have been deleted from the user's mobile storage.

With the new feature, WhatsApp has essentially extended the amount of time it stores the data on its servers. What this feature does is that it allows the WhatsApp user to download old media files in a chat even if they delete it from their local storage. The report also claimed that this new feature was introduced for Android users between version 2.18.106 and 2.18.110. However, WhatsApp seems to be banking on their end-to-end encryption for this particular job. WhatsApp released the first beta version 2.18.109 on April 12. If you delete any WhatsApp photo, image or GIF file from your phone, you can not download it again. Previously, WhatsApp stored "un-downloaded' media files for 30 days and when a user downloaded them, the application used to delete it from the server".

According to a report by WABetaInfo, users can now download all the files including photos, videos, GIF, voice messages and documents on the messaging app.

So, you can download a deleted file from the WhatsApp folder with the path sdcard/WhatsApp/ only if you have the message in the chat.

Good news and bad for tax filing procrastinators
Also, you will avoid the Tax Day frenzy - and get your tax refund faster. So, it's a great year to have a professional look at your taxes.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally released the Android beta 2.18.109 update which will resolve the issue of a Day bug.

WhatsApp reportedly appears all set to change its "delete for all" feature again. There is only one condition that, if you have cleared the conversation in which the concerned media file was received then it will not be possible to download that media file again.

Timestamps for chats on the WhatsApp beta version for Android were showing as "89ESTERDAY and "84ODAY" instead of "Yesterday" and "Today". Therefore, the bug was primarily changing the first alphabets of the affected timestamps with their ASCII codes.

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