  • WhatsApp’s deleted messages can still be read

A recently introduced feature added to the popular communications app WhatsApp promised users they would be able to delete sent messages before they are seen may not actually delete the messages at all.

WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to quickly switch from voice to video call while the voice call is in progress. Doing so will produce a menu with "Delete" options. It adds that the recipient can easily access the deleted messages regardless whether it has been deleted from sender's end. Secondly, it only works when a user has received a notification of the message.

Unfortunately, that appears not to be the case. Once you install, you will have to search for the message in the Android notification log. "So, it's just a matter of entering that record to see the messages that the other person deleted", the blog said.

We were able to read any deleted messages that we'd already read in WhatsApp, for example, and any deleted messages that we'd swiped away when they first appeared on-screen as notifications.

Have you ever sent a WhatsApp message to the wrong chat?
