'Messages'→ tap the 3 vertically stacked dots→'Trash'→tap & hold the texts or conversations you want to restore (you may see 'Select conversations')→'Restore'
Alternately:
tap on the conversation→'Edit'→whioe in 'Select messages' you can choose 1 or multiple (by tapping the circle(s) to the left of it/them to select) or can just select 'All' (by tapping the circle right above it to select that)→'Restore'

If they're not there, then you may be able to restore them via Samsung Backup, but it'll restore all texts that were present at the time the backup took place. If the texts in question weren't there yet or were already gone by the time the backup took place, then it won't be able to retrieve those specific texts along with all of the others that were backed up.

From the message app look for the three dots on the top right corner, click on trash, should be in there.

If you're using Google messages you won't be able to recover them.

All of my recent text messages deleted with the new update. How can I get them back. I tried to restore but the latest back up was done after the update so it did not restore them.
