WhatsApp Payment feature is now available for some users in India

According to the report, the recipient was able to download media from a text sent 2 months ago but there for the messages dating back to nearly a year, the application asks to request the sender to send the file again. At present, if users delete media including photos, GIFs, and videos from their phone they can not re-download the same on WhatsApp again. However, now, WhatsApp does not seem to delete the data from the server and that enables users to download it again if it was accidentally deleted.

WhatsApp on Android will let users re-download old media messages, including videos and images that might have been deleted from the user's mobile storage.

WhatsApp has included a new update in its beta version v2.18.111 to re-download the deleted media from any WhatsApp folder along with fixing bugs with the latest update. 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.

According to a report by WAbetainfo, a new minor WhatsApp feature has been silently added to updates between 2.18.106 and 2.18.110.

Chinese minister visits Japan for talks on N. Korea, regional issues
Trump tweeted on Thursday that he "would only join TPP if the deal were substantially better than the deal offered to Pres. The Japan-China Excessive-Stage Financial Dialogue was being held Monday in Tokyo for the primary time since August 2010.

This new WhatsApp feature comes amid recent outrage over data leak by Facebook.

To be clear, only those messages that are still in your chat log will be downloadable again. Now, WhatsApp has modified this behaviour. The feature will allow download of images, videos, voice messages, etc which were sent more as long as three months back. 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.

"Interestingly, the new WhatsApp feature also means that the app stores users" media on its servers even after the files have been downloaded, the report said.

" Only if the file has been deleted in sdcard/WhatsApp/ and you have the message in the chat, you can successfully download it again", says the report. Gadgets 360 has been able to verify the new feature is now available in the WhatsApp version 2.18.113 on Android.
