As per a report by WABetaInfo, Whatsapp now allows download of deleted media files like images, videos, GIFs, and documents from Whatsapp's servers.

We have all been through this. Now, it has introduced a feature that allows the user to download old media content again even if he/she deleted it from their phone.

If you're among the users who were annoyed by the faulty timestamps, you can download the latest WhatsApp beta version on your device by visiting Google Play. It was also all-pervasive in nature - showing the odd timestamps across WhatsApp Status, messages, and calls.

No injuries were reported and the Red Cross will assist the family with temporary shelter. Authorities say the homeowner noticed the fire before smoke detectors were activated.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp beta users may have noticed a bug affecting the timestamp of chats on their app on version 2.18.109.

Being a beta tester has advantages and disadvantages - you get access to the latest features and updates before anyone else, but you have to suffer through glitches and bugs.

WhatsApp reportedly appears all set to change its "delete for all" feature again. The report said that the feature has been added between the 2.18.106 and 2.18.110 updates in WhatsApp. Earlier, WhatsApp stored only un-downloaded media that too for 30 days and used to delete it from the server once the user downloaded it. The only condition is that the message, which had the media attachment should not have been deleted by the sender, otherwise the download will not possible. Extremely old stuff from August 2017 wasn't accessible at all, with WhatsApp simply asking them to request the sender to forward the media again. This new feature joins other new features rolled out by the messaging platform owned by Facebook. The bug wasn't limiting the chat experience but was annoyingly replacing timestamps carrying "Today" and "Yesterday" with ASCII codes. On Android, if you have chosen to save WhatsApp media on the phone, it gets saved into a dedicated folder in the path (sdcard/WhatsApp/).
