Storage usage management feature on WhatsApp has been offered to iOS users for some time now and it might also be rolled over to Android soon as the feature is being tested in the beta version.
Using the storage usage feature, users will now be able to view the amount of storage used by conversations with each of their contacts individually, including text messages and any form of media.
Earlier, users could only delete entire conversations along with the media files but now they will be able to delete each of these separately. Per se, you wish to delete the text conversation but wish to keep the media or vice-versa — that’s possible now.
This feature will be useful, especially to clear out useless media or conversations from large groups. Let’s say your office group has a lot of important information but also a lot of useless ‘troll’ images, videos or GIFs that don’t pique your interest. Then, this is a simple way to get rid of them without losing any of the important information.
