WhatsApp is one of the most famous apps for messaging. From video calls to live location, the app comes with a slew of features to provide a smooth experience to the users. One of them is the ability to delete messages, which is a great feature. If you accidentally forward a message to a contact or send a wrong message, then you can delete it immediately.
However, WhatsApp gives only one hour to delete a message, after which this option is not available to the users. That’s also fine, the problem is that when you delete a message, the app notifies the receiver as well as it creates curiosity in the receiver’s mind as to what the message might be.
Instagram has implemented the same feature in a better way, as the app doesn’t add a dedicated “delete message” box to the chat, unsends the direct message so the receiver doesn’t even know it at times.
If you want to read deleted WhatsApp messages, there is a way to do so. However, it is a bit weak for convenience purposes. If you still want to proceed, keep in mind that you will need to download a third party app for this.
Get Deleted Messages App
There are many apps on the Google Play Store that you can try. We have installed “Get Deleted Messages” app, which is only available for Android users. It lets you easily get deleted WhatsApp messages as well as deleted things from media.
When a message is deleted, this app sends a notification to the users after which you can enter the app and then check it. The only point of this app is the ads it contains. Let’s read further to know more about how you can read any deleted WhatsApp message through this app.
How to read deleted WhatsApp messages on mobile?
Step 1: Install “Get Deleted Messages” App from Google Play Store.
Step 2: Now you have to give some permissions to the app. Once done, the app is all set.
Note: Your permission will be required for the app to run in the background. Of course, you can change this at any time in your phone’s Settings > Apps & notifications. Apart from this, the app will also ask for permission for notifications and storage.

When will this app not work?
If you disable “Notifications” access for this app, it will not be able to show you deleted messages. Such apps pull the message from the notification panel as soon as you receive the message. So, even if the message is deleted when you open WhatsApp, you will be able to see it in the Delete app. Additionally, if you switch off your smartphone, this app will not be able to recover the deleted messages.
*Note: Keep in mind that this third-party app cannot read your messages from WhatsApp. It can only get them from your phone’s notification panel.
