Restory is a free Android application that allows you to recover messages deleted by the sender on WhatsApp. The software records chat history via app notifications and restores text messages, photos, videos and GIFs. For this reason, the tool will only work correctly if notifications from your contacts and groups are not muted.

In the following tutorial, check out how to set up and use the Restory app to recover deleted messages in WhatsApp. The procedure was performed on a Moto E5 Plus with Android 8.0 Oreo, but the tips also apply to other phones with the Google system. The app is not available for iPhone (iOS).
