- On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Photos app.
- At the bottom, tap Library
- In the options that appear, choose Trash
- Press and hold for a couple of seconds the video you want to recover
- At the bottom, tap on Restore
- Once you have done so, the video you had deleted will be available again both in the Google Photos library and in the phone’s gallery. In the event that before deleting it was also in an album, you will also find it there again. For all practical purposes, it will be the same as if you had not deleted it. Therefore, you have the peace of mind that you may regret having deleted something.
