On WhatsApp every day we exchange dozens (or even hundreds) of messages with friends, relatives, colleagues and acquaintances. Many of these messages are of little importance, but some of them may be essential for our work or for private matters. Unfortunately, it can happen to delete messages from WhatsApp and then regret it. In these cases, the following questions and needs to read messages deleted by Whatsapp arise spontaneously:
- How to read deleted messages from WhatsApp?
- How to recover accidentally deleted WhatsApp chats from WhatsApp?
- Are messages deleted from WhatsApp still recoverable and / or readable?
To give an exhaustive answer to all these questions we have decided to write the following article. We will show several ways to be able to again read messages deleted from WhatsApp even if it has been a long time since the cancellation. Obviously these methods give a solution in particular conditions, but if you are lucky you can also find the conversations you are looking for so desperately.
For those who don't know yet, WhatsApp added a long time ago new feature which allows users to cancel sending messages within one hour. Messages can be deleted in individual chats and group chats, and the feature is agolable on Android, iOS and Windows platforms. Whatsapp's unsubscribe feature comes with warnings such as that recipients learn that you have deleted a message and they will see something like this "This messaggio è stato eliminato”In place of the deleted message.
The function is useful for recalling the message if you have made a spelling mistake or if you have sent the message unintentionally. However, if you want to see deleted WhatsApp messages, there are a couple of workarounds that can be used.
Way 1. Read deleted messages using Whatsapp Backup
If you have accidentally deleted a chat you want to recover, you can do it with the help of WhatsApp backup which (if activated) is done automatically every night by default. You can change the backup frequency to daily, weekly or monthly. However, it is recommended that you choose every day as your preferred frequency as this can restore any messages that were deleted the day before.
To restore deleted WhatsApp chats via backup, here are the steps to follow:
A) Uninstall WhatsApp and install it again from the Google Play Store if you are using an Android device, or from the App Store if you are using an iPhone.
B) Accept the Terms and Conditions and enter your mobile number together with the country code to verify the number.
C) After verification an option will appear to restore chats from a backup. Click on the restore option and your WhatsApp chats will be restored (including those messages you deleted the day before)
D) Now look at your message history and look for those deleted messages you want to see and read again.
