Whatsapp has redesigned it’s storage management tool so users can delete multiple shared videos, GIFs and videos at once. This new tool will allow users to free up space quickly by making it easier to find files that are too big and will be available worldwide in the coming week.
Currently, the storage tool is only able to sort all chats by how much space they are taking up and list the number of photos, GIFs, videos, voice messages, documents and stickers that have been sent. Each category is then able to be deleted from the phone in a few simple steps. Although useful, this is problematic as users were not able to see all the content they were discarding.
The new tool will tackle this so you are able to decide yourself what information you want to keep or remove. This will be made even easier by offering users thumbnails categorizing shared messages under titles such as “forwarded many times” or “Larger than 5MB” which can be immediately removed.
