WhatsApp users’ privacy at risk Report

The latest report states that the version between the 2.18.106 and 2.18.110 updates has got this new feature, which will let you download deleted media from the servers. Basically, the WhatsApp servers will store the media files even after downloading them.

This means that if you removed any images, GIFs, videos, audio files, audio recordings or even a document from the internal storage of your smartphone, WhatsApp will allow you to re-download them again from its servers. But now the Facebook-owned messaging app enables you to download such files as well.

WhatsApp beta version 2.18.109, which rolled out to users on April 12, had the timestamp issue.

WhatsApp beta testers using Android devices have received the new update v2.18.74 with the aforementioned feature. But now those files can be re-downloaded, thanks to the latest update. 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.

After the migration, in the recipient's phone, all shared messages in the old chat will be transferred in the new one and in the chat will appear a new bubble, indicating that the user has a new number, WABetaInfo said.

As per the reports, the timestamps for the chats on the WhatsApp for Android was showing as "89ESTERDAY" and "84ODAY" instead of Yesterday and Today. Therefore, the bug was primarily changing the first alphabets of the affected timestamps with their ASCII codes.

WhatsApp has added a new feature allowing its users on Android to re-download media files that they accidentally deleted from their smartphones.

The new "Change Number" feature update is now available in the 2.18.97 Android beta update on Google Play Store. 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/).
