Telegram has gained an “undo” feature, one that allows you to undo something referring to the history of deleted messages. That is, it is possible to recover. The messenger made a change, and now when you delete a chat or clear history, you’ll receive a confirmation request and an option to restore everything.
This only works if you have deleted a message or an entire chat “unintentionally”. Telegram will allow you to undo the action and retrieve the history within 5 seconds. When time is up, the chat is hopelessly lost and there is no way …
Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram does not have backup on Android. You can export data if you use the desktop version and mount a manual and periodic backup. If this is your case, make sure everything is not there. Telegram messages are stored in the cloud. When you delete a message from the app, it also removes conversations from the cloud.
Well, if you do not have an official way to recover permanently deleted messages, always another solution. Here’s how to recover deleted messages from Telegram. It may be easier to find the media than the texts.
How to recover deleted Telegram messages
1) Telegram Binders
Not everything can be lost, if you use a File Manager application it is easier to search. Search through Telegram Audio, Telegram Documents, Telegram Images and/or Telegram Video folders. When you receive media from someone, depending on your app configuration, it is saved and may be on the memory card or internal memory. They will not be deleted immediately even if you delete the conversation.
2) Android cache folder
Another way is to find the Android cache folder in which all messages, photos, gifs, videos, audios, and other deleted chat files have been stored. To do this, go to the “Android” folder. There look for “data” (or date) and you will see data from a series of applications. Look for the “org.telegram” folder and its “cache”. When opening, you should find files recently deleted from conversations.
3) Deleted/Corrupted File Recovery
If you recently cleaned your phone, you may have reset those folders. A data recovery application for Android or for Windows/MacOS can help. They usually have free version, but limited to a small amount of files. You can test and, if you find something, buy the license and recover what is possible.
