How to recover deleted message?

In the new beta update, a snapbar pops up everytime you delete a message for a few second, providing the option to undo the action. However, if you choose not to do anything, then the message will be deleted permanently.

If you update new Beta version of Whatsapp and you are not getting this snapbar, it means you are not among lucky users. Then you would have to wait a little longer when Whatsapp will launch the full-fledged update for users globally.

Let’s have a look on other new features of Whatsapp

Leave groups without getting notice

Each and every person would get to know who left the group previously on the platform, which was very irritating and dramatic especially for introverts. Thanked to the new update, it will become possible to leave the group without being notifying to every member of the group except the group admin/admins. It’s truly a boon for introverts who prefer not to say why they left the group. This update will become available in the last week of August month for Whatsapp users globally.

Block Screenshot of ‘View Once’ messages

In order to stop users to have permanent digital records, Whatsapp came up with ‘View Once’ option in which users can only see messages but can’t keep them in their devices. However, users use screenshot to capture the message making the view once option short of its actual aim. To resolve the issue, Whatsapp is working on blocking screenshot option which is also roll out for beta testers. It will definitely update the security feature of the messaging platform.

Control your visibility

Whatsapp snatches your privacy by making you visible for others. They can know when you are online and when the last time you use Whatsapp. Though the feature is for users’ benefit, some don’t like online surveillance. They need privacy and solitude time to time. This new feature will allow you to choose and pick contacts who can see you online, your last seen, your status, & more.

Strengthen privacy with two-step verification
