WhatsApp users can now undo deleted messages
WhatsApp is releasing an undo feature using which iOS beta users will be able to recover their messages.
Have you deleted any important WhatsApp message by mistake? Do not worry, as you will now be able to recover your deleted messages easily. WhatsApp is releasing an undo feature to recover deleted messages. What needs to be noted is that the feature is releasing on iOS beta for now. Informing about the same, WABetaInfo tweeted, "WhatsApp is releasing an undo feature to recover deleted messages on iOS beta! If you wanted to delete a message for everyone, but you deleted it for you by mistake, this feature will save you."
WABetaInfo shared a screenshot informing that when a message is deleted by using the option “delete for me”, a snackbar shows up by informing the user that the message has been deleted. In this case, it is possible to restore it by tapping “undo” so the fastest way to check if the feature is available for your account is to delete a message for you.
It can be noted that if the snackbar disappears and you do not use the undo feature, you will not be able to recover deleted messages later. "In addition, the snackbar doesn't show up for messages deleted for everyone, at the moment," it said.
"You should be able to get the feature by updating WhatsApp to the 18.104.22.168 beta available on TestFlight but if the snackbar doesn't show up, don't worry: WhatsApp is used to releasing features to certain beta testers day by day, so you should be able to use the undo feature when the next updates will be available over the coming weeks," WABetaInfo said.
Meanwhile it can be known that you can delete messages just for yourself or request that messages be deleted for everyone. Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you have sent to an individual or group chat. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or if the message you sent contains a mistake.
