WhatsApp Android beta fixes the mysterious timestamp bug

Maha: Avoid objectionable content, cops tell WhatsApp admins

The new feature is now limited to Android version 2.18.113 and is expected to be rolled out to iOS users as well.

The report points out that earlier if the media files were not downloaded, they were made available for 30 days and then deleted from server if the user did not download them.

Amid all the crisis of data protection across the globe, WhatsApp has launched another feature that increases the brand's liability to store personal user data more securely.

Leave Facebook to founder Zuckerberg
Collect and act on NPS-powered customer feedback in real time to deliver fantastic customer experiences at every brand touchpoint. Facebook said in a statement that the security measures were quite important due to Zuckerberg's position within the company.

To make use of the Voice Recording lock feature, users will need to tap the mic button in the chat, and after 0.5 seconds, the UI will present a locked microphone button. According to WABetaInfo, the Twitter account that tracks changes in WhatsApp's beta builds, the company is rolling out a new feature for Android that will enable users to again download media files that they may have accidentally deleted. As WABetaInfo reports, with the introduction of the new feature, it is possible for users to retrieve old media content again even if it has been deleted from their phone. User can now go to that chat and once again download that image. But now those files can be re-downloaded, thanks to the latest update. When it comes to very old media files, it claims that they were not able to download images sent in August 2017 as the app asked them to request the sender to send the files again.

WhatsApp will be saving these media files in their servers for a much longer time. When you download the files, the same was deleted from the servers. But one thing that has eluded the Facebook-owned app is how to monetize this entire user base.

In a related development, WhatsApp is testing a new feature which would allow users to customize the shape and size of the WhatsApp icon on the home screen. The report also adds that even though the files are saved on the server they still come with end-to-end encryption.
