Whatsapp: Now you can read deleted messages
Whatsapp messenger recent rolled out a feature called d Delete for Everyone, a useful feature that lets you unsend embarrassing messages, which effectively removes them from the conversation for both you and the recipient.
According to Android Jefe has found that you can read messages that have already been deleted through your Notification Log on Android phones. It’s still a strange discovery.
You can do this by long-pressing the Settings icon, tapping the Widgets symbol that appears at the top of the pop-up window, and dragging the Settings widget to your home screen.
After that, scroll down to Notification Log and tap on the relevant entry on the list. Alternatively, you can view the same list by downloading an app called Notification History.
Eyetro Digital tried the method and found that, while it is possible to view messages that have been deleted, you need to have already interacted with them. We weren’t, able to recover any deleted messages that we hadn’t seen or interacted with before they were deleted, which should come as a relief for everyone.
