"This new feature also discloses that WhatsApp stores users" media on its servers even after the files have been downloaded.

We have all been through this. At present, if users delete media including photos, GIFs, and videos from their phone they can not re-download the same on WhatsApp again.

The latest report states that the version between the 2.18.106 and 2.18.110 updates has got this new feature, which will let you download deleted media from the servers.

But now WhatsApp is testing a new feature on its beta app for Android that will let you re-download deleted photos, videos, GIFs, voice messages, documents. Recently WhatsApp had confirmed that the user's data and communications are secured with end-to-end encryption and nobody in between can read messages and listen to calls, not even WhatsApp. Now, WhatsApp does not seem to delete the data from the server so that users can download it again. The app will also check if the file is available in the 'sdcard/WhatsApp/' directory before downloading the file. It has chose to store all the messages and multimedia content on its server even if it is downloaded by the user. Earlier, it fixed a timestamp issue found in the WhatsApp beta version 2.18.109.

WhatsApp for Android has added a new feature in its latest updates. However, the feature only works for content that has been received in the past few months provided the user has only deleted the file and not the chat in the app.

The company has rolled out this new upgrade for Android so far but it is expected to be launched for iOS soon. This bug was altering the time stamp on WhatsApp messages by replacing the first two alphabets with the ASCI codes.
