A new feature is coming to recover deleted messages on WhatsApp. WhatsApp, one of the most popular applications in the world, brings a button to the application that will allow you to undo an action you have made. The purpose of the new feature, which has some screenshots, is to recover deleted messages on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp is trying to improve the user experience with this new feature it has revealed. The popular messaging app was previously said to be working on a “message editing” feature. It was stated that this feature, where some screenshots were shared, is still under development. In addition, the messaging application has a feature to delete messages that are used by everyone at least once. This feature allows you to delete messages within a specified time with the ‘Delete for Everyone’ or ‘Delete for Me’ options.
Although deleting a message you sent wrong is a very useful feature, it can be annoying sometimes. Because, especially when you see the message of your partner or friend group late, you can see that they delete the messages they sent “to express their anger towards you”. Thanks to this feature developed by WhatsApp, we will be able to tell our friends to retrieve deleted messages. We will see over time who will use this feature to recover deleted messages on WhatsApp. However, we can still say that it will be a very useful feature.
‘Undo’ Button Coming on WhatsApp
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a button that allows you to undo an action. We can say that this feature can be useful. For example, if you delete a message by mistake, you will be able to undo the action with this feature. This feature of the application, which has more than 2 billion users, will provide convenience to many users.
The screenshot above gave some hints on how the new feature will look in the app. In the image shared by WABetaInfo, after deleting the messages, we come across a notification with the phrase ‘Message Deleted’ at the bottom of the screen. On the side of this notification, we see an ‘Undo’ button that will allow you to undo the action. We likened the recover deleted messages feature in Whatsapp to the undelete feature in Gmail.
WhatsApp will open this feature to users in both group messages and individual messages. However, there is no information yet on whether the undo button will work on messages deleted with the ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature. In the screenshot above, it looks like the new feature is in a deleted message along with ‘Delete from Me’.
As a result, this feature is still under development. Once the improvements are complete, this feature will be available to more than 2 million WhatsApp users. Because the feature of recovering deleted messages on WhatsApp will make it easier for many people. Anyone can delete something accidentally or on purpose. We think that it is a feature that everyone expects that the application takes flexible steps in this regard.
