So, you want to delete all that crap you receive from your friends and relatives on WhatsApp but the hassle of going through them one by one makes you want to rip your hair out?
Lucky you because recently WhatsApp has rolled out a storage management feature which will make deleting videos, pictures, and GIFs as easy as pie.
Here’s how to do it:
On the main page where all your chats are, press the three dots at the top right of the screen, and select ‘Settings.’
Select ‘Storage and data.’
And you’ll be able to see an option called ‘Manage storage.’
Once you’re in there, it will tell you how much storage is used and how much is available.
At the bottom of that will be all your media files separated into two sections: ‘Forwarded many times’ and ‘Larger than 5 MB.’
You have a few options from here on how you can delete these files. You can select on the sections mentioned above and delete all of them, or go through them one by one and select which you would like to delete.
There’s also an option at the bottom which lists down all chats that you had with your contacts and you can delete media files that have been shared there.
If you don’t see this option, make sure you’ve updated WhatsApp through the Play Store or App Store on Android and iOS respectively.
I don’t know about you, but I managed to delete at least 2GB of stupid pictures, videos, and gifs from my phone.
Remember to go through them if you have some media files you want saved.
