How to Revisit Viewed Photos and Videos in WA

Hacking Zone - In this digital age, WhatsApp has become one of the most popular chat apps in the world. Millions of active users use the app every day to communicate with their friends, family, and coworkers. One of the most highly used features on WhatsApp is the ability to send photos and videos to others.

However, there are some situations where we may want to look back at photos or videos sent to us on WhatsApp, especially if they can only be viewed once. Maybe you want to remember a special moment, or maybe there is important information that you want to keep. Fortunately, there are a few ways to solve this problem, and I'll explain them in detail below.

Method 1: Search WhatsApp Gallery and Folders

One of the simplest and most frequently used methods to look back at photos and videos that can only be viewed once on WA is to search for them in your phone's gallery. Whenever you receive a photo or video on WhatsApp, it will automatically be saved in your phone's gallery folder. You can open the gallery and search for the photo or video in the WhatsApp or Media folder.

This method is very easy to do, but there are some drawbacks. First, you have to remember or figure out where the WhatsApp gallery folder is on your phone. Secondly, this method may not work if the message sender has deleted the photo or video from WhatsApp before you have a chance to see it again.

Method 2: Use a Third-Party App

If you can't find the photo or video you want to view again in your phone's gallery, you can try using a third-party app specifically designed for this purpose. There are several apps available on the app store that can help you take a screenshot or record the screen when you open a WhatsApp message that contains the photo or video you want to look back on.

These apps are generally easy to use, but keep in mind that using third-party apps always involves security and privacy risks. Be sure to read user reviews and do some research on the app you choose before installing it on your phone. Also, make sure the app you're using is safe and reliable.

Method 3: Use Another Phone

The latter method is the most effective and easiest. You only need to prepare another phone before opening the single-view photo or video. When you want to open a single view photo or video then use the phone to re-photograph or re-record.

If you can't use the above 2 methods then the last method you can use without any hassle. If you don't have 2 phones, borrow from your friends or family.


By learning and using the methods above, you can easily view back photos and videos that can only be viewed once on WhatsApp. Remember to always use this feature wisely and respect the privacy of the sender.
