WhatsApp Will Release Deleted Message Recovery Feature

Meta’s WhatsApp is reportedly working on a feature to recover deleted messages.

According to WaBetaInfo, the WhatsApp beta update for Android 2.22.13.5 has a feature that helps users recover their accidentally deleted messages.

But, the user will only have a few seconds to recover the deleted messages. Also, the ability will work in one-on-one chat for the ‘delete for me’ option only. This will not work for deleted messages for all.

In its report, as reported by Livemint, WaBetaInfo has shared a screenshot where users will see a snack bar when an attempt to delete a message for you is detected. In this case, WhatsApp users “will have a few seconds to recover the message if you previously wanted to delete it for everyone.”

Obviously, this feature is under development and is expected to be rolled out with future updates. Currently, it is available to beta users on the platform’s Android app.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has released a new Windows app that no longer requires WhatsApp desktop users to link their laptops to their primary smartphones to send, receive and sync messages.

The new native app, WhatsApp says, will offer ‘improved reliability and speed’. It is designed and optimized for your desktop operating system, he adds.

This app will allow users to receive notifications and messages even when their phone is offline. According to the updated FAQ webpage, the new desktop app is available for download on Windows. It can be downloaded via the Microsoft App Store.

In terms of UI and design, the new app offers a cleaner interface and looks almost similar to the existing app.

The only big change that comes with this app is that users no longer need to connect their phones to the internet to receive WhatsApp notifications and messages. The Mac operating system’s native WhatsApp desktop application is currently under development.
