There are several improvements coming to WhatsApp's user interface. Recently, the Meta-owned app has rolled out an undo feature to help users recover messages that have been deleted by mistake.

It was originally announced in the same week that WhatsApp was releasing the 'undo delete messages' feature to some of its beta users on WhatsApp beta for Android.

The story has now been extended to the iOS beta as well. WABetaInfia has also shared a screenshot of the release.

By clicking on the 'undo' button, users will be able to restore deleted messages, even if they deleted them by clicking the 'delete for me' option instead of 'delete for everyone'.

'It has been stated that if a message is deleted using the delete for me option, a snack bar will pop up informing the user that it has been deleted and that it can be retrieved by tapping on the 'undo' button.

In order to find out if this feature is available for your account, WABetaInfo advised you to delete a message for yourself.

A user will not be able to recover deleted messages later if the snack bar disappears without using the undo feature. To get the update, update WhatsApp to the beta version of on TestFlight.

This feature is currently only available to a few iOS beta testers. In the coming weeks, more beta testers will be able to access this feature.

In the past few weeks, WhatsApp has released a feature where users can view status updates within the chat list. The feature has been released to some beta testers so far.
