WhatsApp now allows users to download deleted media, such as images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, and documents, from its servers again. The report said that the feature was introduced in WhatsApp’s recent updates between version 2.18.106 and 2.18.110.

Gadgets 360 has been able to verify the new feature is currently available in the WhatsApp version 2.18.113 on Android. However, the app does not seem to let us download media files that are too old, instead, asking us to send a request to the sender to send the media again.
