WhatsApp bug affecting timestamps patched in new beta version

Due to this protocol, if the users deleted the media content on their phone, they could not retrieve them back ever again.

"Interestingly, the new WhatsApp feature also means that the app stores users" media on its servers even after the files have been downloaded, the report said. As per recent leaks, Whatsapp latest beta version (2.18.113) on Android is packed with the new feature where the user can Request Money from contacts and UPI addresses. At present, if users delete media including photos, GIFs, and videos from their phone they can not re-download the same on WhatsApp again.

The report points out that earlier if the media files were not downloaded, they were made available for 30 days and then deleted from server if the user did not download them. This feature is not available for iOS users because it is unlikely that users will delete anything from the internal file directory without access.
