How to read deleted messages on WhatsApp

WhatsApp recently launched a new ‘Delete For Everyone’ feature, which allowed users to delete the sent messages within seven minutes. Now, according to a new report, the recipient can access the deleted messages, quite easily.

Note:Only text messages can be viewed and one will not be able to recover deleted images, video or other media files.


According to a Spanish Android blog, Android Jefe, users’ smartphones running Android 7.0 Nougat or higher version can simply download a third-party app called Notification History, which is available on Google Play. The app basically allows you to see the Android notification log through which users can retrieve the deleted messages.

However, before moving on there are few points one need to keep in mind. First of all, only text messages can be viewed and one will not be able to recover deleted images, video or other media files. Secondly, it only works when a user has received a notification of the message. Thirdly, one can only view the first 100 characters of the message only. Lastly, the notification log usually stores the information for few hours only and one will not be able to retrieve the deleted message if they have performed a restart.


Here’s how to use it via Notification History app:


Step 1: Download the Notification History app from the Play Store.
Step 2: Find the WhatsApp icon with the name of the person and tap on it.
Step 3: You will be able to see a message in a form of android.txt. From there, users will be able to see the messages.


Other ways to read deleted messages:


Nova Launcher


The report further adds that if users have installed Nova Launcher than there is no need to download a third-party app to access the deleted messages. All you have to do is:


Step 1: Long press the home screen, then tap on Widgets
Step 2: Click on Activities and then on Settings
Step 3: You will see Notification Log on the list. Click to add on home screen


One can now be able to see the notification log from the home screen and users will be able to read deleted WhatsApp messages.
