Just like many other chat apps, this app allows users to send and receive free messages as well as make free HD quality voice and video calls.

The app is very popular in China and Asia in general, thanks to what it has to offer. Unlike most western apps that only offer messaging and calling services, WeChat comes in with a different platform, offering users with more than just instant messaging. Whether you want to make a hotel or air travel reservation, be it making a payment, sending money or even hailing a cab, WeChat has you covered.



The app keeps on adding more and more users and as at the time of this writing, it has a user base of more than 650 million people. Being new on messaging apps can at times be challenging to use, but just as many other apps, WeChat has a very simple interface and is very easy to use.

However, it is quite ordinary to delete messages from the app by mistake. What then comes into question is how do you recover the deleted WeChat messages?

How to recover deleted WeChat messages

One thing you need to know is that creating regular backups is very important. Using platforms such as iCloud or iTunes to back up iPhone data will ensure that recovering deleted WeChat messages is a hassle-free exercise.

It’s very easy to get back your messages with the help of an iCloud or iTunes backup extractor app such as iFonebox. Using this tool will ensure that you get back your messages including text and photos. There are two versions available for download depending on your OS version.

Once downloaded and installed, launch it and choose “Recover from iCloud Backup” mode. You will need your Apple ID and password to access the backed files. A list of all files backed up on iCloud will show up. Pick the ones you want and click on “Select”. The backup extractor app will start scanning the WeChat photos available in the backup. Go ahead and select WeChat Attachments from iCloud backup. The photos are stored in WeChat attachments.

There is room to preview and pick the photos you want to restore to WeChat. Once these photos are selected, hit on the “Recover to PC” button and all of these messages will be restored and saved on your computer.

In case your back up is on iTunes, just replace the “iCloud” option with “iTunes” in the above steps.
