The popular instant messaging platform WhatsApp often comes up with astounding new features to make users' experience better. As a part of that, it introduced the ‘delete for everyone' feature in 2017 which allowed users to delete a particular message not only for themselves but also for the receiver. As a result, once deleted, the user only gets to see a text that says “This message was deleted”. While very useful to save yourself from embarrassing situations, sometimes users accidentally delete important messages and instantly regret it as there is no way to see it again. However, if you have found yourself in a similar situation, there is something you can do to recover Whatsapp deleted messages. Just check out how to implement this WhatsApp trick.

WhatsApp trick: Recover deleted messages on WhatsApp

We have all been in that situation when after reading a message we wanted to ‘star' it for easier accessibility, but ended up deleting it for everyone. Similarly, sometimes people delete a message after they sent it to the wrong person only to realize that they never copied it and the information is lost forever. Sadly, WhatsApp does not have a feature to solve this problem. And while many third-party applications claim they can restore and recover deleted messages on WhatsApp, a large majority do not work and some even dump malware and viruses in your device.

But, there is a WhatsApp trick to get back these messages, provided that you have turned on the chat history backup feature. This trick will not work without it. Also if a long time has passed since the deletion of the message, you may not get it back either. However, for those of you who just lost an important message and want it back, there is a solution. Check out the steps below.
