I have a group of friends who send messages and then delete them. This not only leaves you frustrated, but also makes you curious about the messages (isn’t that how you feel since you’re here 😉). If you are like me and want to outdo your friends, I have an easy way to recover those deleted messages. So, without further ado, here is how to read deleted messages on WhatsApp.
Before we begin, keep in mind that this way you will be able to see messages that have been deleted only after you install the next application. If you already have some deleted messages that you have missed, then the following method will not work for you. sorry.
How to recover deleted WhatsApp messages
To recover deleted WhatsApp chats, we are going to use an app called WhatsTool. It is an app that is loaded with many advanced features like live chat, profile search, video splitting, and much more, one of which is the feature of recovering deleted messages. This method works while the phone is locked, when using other apps and even when chatting with someone else on WhatsApp. The only time it won’t work will be when your network is down, and the chat is deleted before it’s even connected to you.
WhatsToo recovers deleted messages using your notifications and shows you deleted conversation within the app
Open Play Store, and search for WhatsTool app. Now, download and install the app and open it from the app drawer.
When you open the app for the first time, it will ask for storage permissions. Tap on Allow when you see such a popup. Now select an option Recover deleted messages from the main menu.
Like I said, the app will extract messages from your notifications. So it will only work if your phone receives the notification from Whatsapp.
In this step, we will allow the app to read notifications. Click on Start recovering messages As shown in the image below. Then enable WhatsTool for WhatsApp To read the application information.
In the new screen, you will not find any new messages, because the application has not detected any messages yet. A slight drawback of this app is that it will display all the WhatsApp messages you receive (and not the ones that have been sent), in the chats tabs similar to WhatsApp.
To expand the chat, tap on the contact’s name and choose View all new WhatsApp messages sent from that contact. When a contact sends any message and it is deleted, it will appear in the same chat. Just for experimentation, ask a friend to text you and delete it. This will give you a better idea of the user interface and how the app works best.
Below is an explanation of how the message is reflected in the original WhatsApp chat and in the Whats Tool app. You cannot reply with WhatsTool and there are banner ads which I did not find intrusive. The app features many other useful features, which you will love if you want to step up your WhatsApp game that I mentioned above. You can unlock the advanced features by watching the sponsored ads, and you can get the advanced features and remove banner ads also at a price of $6.
So this was an easy way by which you can read WhatsApp messages that have been deleted. It works well with any Android phone and is very easy to use. Besides, Android 11 also introduced the notification history option. But since most phones haven’t received an update yet, we can’t really say how that will happen. Until then, this app is here to save you. Learn how to create an individual chat report on WhatsApp.
