The company continuously updates the user interface bringing new features to WhatsApp, to increase effective communication among users. However, we at times, while chatting with our loved ones or a friend accidentally delete a message, but, do you know you can recover that message. Keep in mind that you can only recover a deleted chat if you have back up option turned on.

If you haven’t tuned on chat back up, we recommend you to switch it on for future back up needs. Go to WhatsApp, then tap on Settings, then onto Chats and select the frequency of your back say daily, weekly or monthly. We recommend to set it to back up daily.
