If you have been using WhatsApp for a while, then you might know that WhatsApp made some huge changes the previous year. WhatsApp got the ability to delete sent messages. Although the feature is useful, it has been misused. The recall or delete for everyone feature is already there on WhatsApp, but it has few limits. You can only delete messages within the 7 minutes of being sent. Once you cross the time limit, you can’t remove the messages from every end.
However, Android users know how to find a way out of everything, and the same thing goes for WhatsApp Delete for Everyone feature as well. You can read the deleted messages even after the 7 minute time frame. Since our notification panel shows the first few words of the received messages, all you need to do is to access the Notification Logs or use any Notification Manager app to access deleted WhatsApp messages.

Read Deleted Messages Without Using Any App
There’s a method to read deleted messages without using an app. If you are using Android for a while, then you will know that the operating system saves all notifications temporarily under the ‘Notification Log’. So, we can see the Notification log to read the deleted WhatsApp messages. However, it only shows the first 30 letters of the messages. So, here’s how you can use notification log to read deleted messages.
#1 Long press on the free area of the home screen and then tap on Widgets.
#2 Now under the Widgets, find the ‘Settings’
#3 Now you will see the list of settings. Here you need to scroll down and tap on ‘Notification Log’
Under the notification log, you will be able to see all previous notifications including WhatsApp messages. However, the method shared above will only work if you haven’t restart your smartphone after receiving the notifications. If you have restarted or reset your Android smartphone, then you won’t see anything on Notification log.
Another thing is that Notification Logs saves the past few records of received notification, something between 10 to 20. So, if your smartphone has received 20-30 notifications soon after the WhatsApp’s one, then you won’t find it on the Notification Log. So, it’s better not to waste time in such situations.
These are the two best methods to read deleted WhatsApp messages. In our opinion, the GBWhatsApp method works best. If you have any suggestions, let us know in the comment section below.
