How to read deleted WhatsApp messages?

WhatsApp added a feature on the platform some time ago, in which the user sending the message can delete the message sent by both parties. Understand in simple language, if you send a message to someone on WhatsApp and think of deleting it after sending it, then now you will get two options. If you press and hold on to that message, you can delete that message either only for you or for both you and the other person. The second option is named 'Delete for everyone', due to which the message is also removed from the receiver's chat. Now it comes to whether you can read the messages deleted by the sender later, then the answer is, yes you can read the deleted messages on WhatsApp.

If a message comes on your WhatsApp and the message is deleted before or after you read it, then you do not need to be disappointed, because you can read that deleted message back. For this, you will have to turn on a special setting on your Android phone. We are telling you how to easily turn on this setting in a few steps. Keep in mind that these settings are only available on Android phones.

If you have an Android phone, then it will be easy for you to read the messages deleted by the sender on WhatsApp. All you need to do is turn on a setting called 'Notification History'. However, keep in mind that this setting will work for WhatsApp only when the Notification setting of your WhatsApp is turned on.

How to read deleted WhatsApp messages?

  • First of all, go to Settings on your phone.
  • Now tap on the 'Apps & Notifications' option.
  • Here tap on the 'Notifications' option.
  • Now go inside the 'Notification History' option and turn on this setting.

The Notification History feature records all notifications from WhatsApp as well as all the notifications on your phone. In such a situation, if someone sends you a message and that message comes in the notification on your phone, then that message will be recorded. After this, even if the sender deletes that message, you can still read that message under the notification history option.

Here you need to keep in mind that the notification only records the test details. If a photo, video, or file has been sent to you and is later deleted, you will not be able to see it in Notification History. Additionally, if your chat box is open and a message you receive is not recorded in notifications, you will not be able to see that message in your history.

Finally, keep in mind that Notifications History only records notifications received within 24 hours, so you won't be able to see messages deleted before this time limit here.
